1. Historic Wall Marker
Inscription. The circular stone wall that encloses the Battle Monument is built of stones from historic structures of Washington County. Some 40 communities are represented, including the pioneer settlements at Cane Hill, Cincinnati, Viney Grove, Rhea's Mill, Mt. Comfort, Springdale, Elkins, Farmington, Fayetteville, and others. The stones are from early schools and churches, mills, postoffices, colleges, stage-coach stations and pioneer homes. They include building stones from old Cane Hill College, Ozark Institute, Salem Camp Ground, Ada and Sweet Home postoffices, the University of Arkansas, and many others. The wall is truly "History in Stone."
