Mount Jackson in Shenandoah County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Mayor Joseph A. "Joe" Williams
Mayor Joseph A. "Joe" Williams"
Joe was our mayor from his astounding "write-in" victory in 1998 until his sudden passing in 2013. Under his leadership our beautiful Town Hall was constructed as was this wonderful space that has become Mayors Park. Joe's vision and dedication to Mount Jackson revitalized our town.
The Joseph A. Williams Memorial Gazebo is a place to meet, relax, and converse. This gazebo being the focal point of the park hosts various community events.
Now come, sit a spell and enjoy Mayors Park and our town… Joe would have wanted it that way.
Erected by Town of Mount Jackson, Virginia.
