Veterans Park and War Memorial dedication in Dearborn

Posted: September 28, 2016
The City of Dearborn, along with the Dearborn Allied War Veterans Council, held a dedication ceremony for the new site of its Veterans Park and War Memorial at the Henry Ford Centennial Library.

Dedicated there in 1991, the monuments had to be removed from the property because the city no longer owns the building.
