Troy Grove is best known as the birth place of the American Frontier icon
Wild Bill Hickok. Across the street from the Veterans Memorial and GAR
Memorial Park is the Memorial dedicated to Hickok.
This Memorial Monument consists of two low gray granite walls on stone
bases. These walls contain the names of 160 U.S. military veterans from
the Troy Grove community. There are no notations as to the conflicts these
veterans served in. I did confirm that the names of World War 1 veterans
are listed on the walls. There is a center gray granite marker which reads,
“Dedicated To All the Men And Women Of The Village Of Troy Grove Who
Served Our Country In War And Peace”.
