Liberty Grove Open Military Honor Circle

The Liberty Grove Historical Society (LGHS) announced the opening of its new Military Honor Circle to all Door County veterans and active duty personnel. Situated on the historical society’s grounds overlooking Ellison Bay, it is the first memorial monument in Door County honoring individual military personnel, according to the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. Excavation for the Honor Circle was done by John Fitzgerald Construction of Ellison Bay. Installation of the masonry circle itself, as well as a Heritage Walkway leading to the circle, was completed by Franke Masonry Construction of Baileys Harbor in October. As hoped, the Honor Circle can now be opened to accommodate all Door County military personnel of every era. Meissner Landscape Inc. of Sturgeon Bay is installing the engraved pavers. To date, 125 veterans and active duty personnel have already been venerated with pavers donated by Liberty Grove residents and others. Two of the circle’s five sections have been partially populated with pavers, and the other three sections are now also available for inclusion of all Door County veterans and active duty personnel. Proceeds from the sale of pavers will be invested to complete and maintain the Honor Circle, as well as a Heritage Walkway of engraved pavers donated by county sponsors. Any donations in excess of those used to install, maintain and (if necessary) expand the memorial monument will be invested in related programs of the Liberty Grove Historical Society. All those interested in donating pavers, fully engraved and installed at $125 per 4” x 8” paver and $250 per 8” x 8” paver, call LGHS Secretary Faith Murray at 920.421.1477.
