Inscription.  On this site in 1894, the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Building was erected to honor those from Licking County who died in the Civil War. The original building facade was destroyed by fire in 1968. The building also housed the Auditorium Theater, the theatrical center of the community. After years of neglect, the unused building was razed in 2002. Licking County Foundation Park honors the building's long history as a place for family entertainment and for remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our community.
