About The Park



The park entrance is a wrought iron sign supported by a pair of 6-foot high red granite pillars bearing the name. “Stoughton Area Veterans Memorial Park.” The first feature is an “educational section” consisting of 12 red granite pillars with famous quotes or speeches and an etching depicting significant military events, and a bronze plaque showing the name of the donor. Gray granite benches are placed throughout the section, which includes a walkway featuring a variety of sizes of bricks and pavers with the inscription of the donor's choice.

The third section of the memorial is planned to be a black granite monument with the names of all Stoughton area men and women who served in the military since the Civil War (1861-65), lined with flags of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marines.

The park’s centerpiece is a gray granite structure with a 10-by-10-foot base in the shape of a pentagon, bearing the names of the 150 Stoughton area troops killed in action. A bronze plaque is attached for Truman Olson, killed in action 70 years ago in Italy during World War II and posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military honor.

The granite wall on the inside of the structure is a painted 3-by-5-foot U.S. flag. On top of the base is a 6-by-6-foot cap holding five round columns topped by another cap and a bronze eagle with a 5-foot wingspan. Bronze plaques with donors’ names are placed on all pillars, flag bases, centerpiece and entrance.
