Monument Park

In 1908, President William Howard Taft signed a bill that allowed for the building of aMonument-2.jpg monument in Fort Recovery. The monument was built in 1912 and dedicated on July 1, 1913. The obelisk stands at 101', 4" tall. It weighs approximately 800 tons and cost $23,700 to build. The nine foot statue depicts a frontiersman facing west and looking out at the beautiful land into which he triumphed. Underneath the base of the monument are the remains of those people killed under the commands of Arthur St. Clair and Anthony Wayne. 32 medallions surround the base of the monument, each inscribed with the name of an officer killed in battle here. Four bronze plaques also surround the base of the monument. photo-1.JPG

To this day, each Memorial Day weekend, over 900 crosses are placed in Monument Park in remembrance of the fallen soldiers.

The park is located at the corner of OH-49 and OH-119.

In 2016, a new monument was erected on the east side of Monument Park. The names of several hundred service men and women from all branches of military are engraved in stainless steal walls that are secured with white concrete pillars which are enhanced with medallions.
