The original Honor Roll was located at the southeast corner of Lake Anna Park and was dedicated August 5, 1945.

It was refurbished and updated in May 1997. The current Honor Roll was built on the site of the old monument and was dedicated November 11, 2004. This reconstruction was made possible by donations from the City of Barberton, The Barberton Community Foundation, veterans groups, service organizations, corporations, businesses and individuals. A complete listing of all donors is on file at the Barberton Public Library.
