1. Coldwater Michigan National Guard Armory Memorial Marker
Inscription. The Michigan National Guard Armory was dedicated in 1917 and was the major information and gathering facility for Branch County's Military, Company A-32.

These guns, known as the Maxim-Nordenfeldt Automatics, are anti-aircraft weapons, and they fired a one pound shot. They were mounted upon the deck of a battleship and used in combat.

These guns are a gift to the citizens of Branch County and are to stand as a small memorial to our soldiers that served and the ones that give their lives on our behalf for our country.
