Spooner Veterans Memorial

The Spooner Veterans’ Memorial was completed in 2003. It is located in Waterfront Park on the south side of Spooner.Built by the Spooner-Trego Lions Club, the memorial consists of six jet-black granite stones, 8 feet wide and 51/2 feet high. Each stone is inscribed with up to 750 names of Spooner area veterans. To be included, the veteran must have “strong ties to Spooner,” such as having attended school, lived or worked here. Currently there are more than 3,700 names inscribed on the stones. Names will be added as they become available. Names are engraved at no cost to the veteran’s family. In addition to the memorial stones, the floor of the memorial is laid with 900 granite paver stones set between 6,000 decorative stones. Individuals and groups can order paver stones engraved with a message. The memorial also features a bell tower with a four-foot eagle on top. Eight flags fly above the memorial. They are the American, Wisconsin and POW-MIA flags, as well as flags for each branch of the U.S. armed forces.
