Regarding Dunklin Monument. The six-tiered marble Dunklin Monument to Private Tim L. Dunklin of the 4th Texas Infantry was erected in the 1870s, presumably by the Dunklin family. The monument has six tiers, composed top to bottom of white marble, gray slate, and red sandstone.

Efforts by the National Park Service and the Prince William Historical Commission to relocate the monument to the Stuart's Hill Center have been unsuccessful to date.
