The City Square in downtown Greenwood has become the area’s finest permanent memorial to the sacrifices of uniformed service men and women. A committee which included members of the Harris-Hannah VFW Post 6527, the South Sebastian County Historical Society, Greenwood City Department heads, and concerned citizens guided the entire process. The Committee worked with Fort Smith architect Michael LeJong of MAHG Architecture on plans for the Square which included monuments in stone with all the names of veterans that are submitted free of charge.
Funding for the project was provided by Senator Ed Wilkinson, State Representatives Steve Breedlove, and Shirley Walters and donations from local Citizens.
A redesign of the clock tower including a new roof and native stone fascia are planned as well as a new fountain, gazebo, and finishing the wrought iron fence.
As part of the Veterans’ Memorial Square, a “Patriots Walk” circles the Clock Tower and contains granite Stepping Stones each bearing the name of a veteran on whose behalf families have contributed.
These Stepping Stones are $150.00, will be uniform in size (12”x12”) and content, and will be randomly placed in the circle.
