Hendricks County War Memorial
This memorial is dedicated to the Hendricks County servicemen that have answered the call of duty. To these gallant servicemen, we add our heartfelt thanks for a job well done.

The memorial was just a Jaycee dream back in 1989 and that dream became reality on Dedication Day, July 4, 1992 thanks to the great support of the citizens of this County. Under this stone is a Time Capsule that contains the story of this dream and is to be opened on July 4, 2042.
