Vietnam Memorial Garden

Work is well underway on the third garden on the museum site, the Vietnam Memorial Garden.  Already completed and opened to the public on May 30, 2009, with an Unveilling Ceremony attended by over 2000 is the 300-foot long, 1/2 scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C.  The new memorial wall is permanent and unique, in that the wall will be updated annually to ensure everything on the wall is accurate and up to date.

Adjacent to the Vietnam Memorial Wall replica, a small forest of Arizona Cypress trees is being planted.  The wall is accessed by a path of decomposed granite. The wall is unique in a number of ways, not the least of which is the accuracy of the names on the wall.  The wall will be updated annually to ensure it stays current.

 

 

 

 

Shown below is an artist's concept of the new garden.

The new garden is estimated to cost $175,000.  Over $100,000 has already been raised and fundraising is ongoing.  Once constructed, additional funding will be needed for maintenance and utilities.  Your contributions are needed today and may be made online using the Gift Shop Order Form or may be mailed to the museum at the address shown on the Contact Page.   

The garden will also contain memorials in the form of bricks, tablets and monuments that can be placed there by individuals and organizations wishing to honor the memory of a loved one or members of an organization.  Please contact us for complete information.
