Built in 1925 by C&H Sugar, the town's largest employer, the Crockett Veterans Memorial and Meeting House stands on a prominent bluff over the Carquinez Straits, which connect San Francisco Bay with the central valley rivers of the state. At its entrance near the intersection of Alexander and Pomona Streets is a plaque honoring the 12 local men who were killed in the war. On panels around the top of the structure are 4 pertinent patriotic quotes:
To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace. - George Washington
Do not destroy that immortal emblem of humanity - the Declaration of Independence. - Abraham Lincoln
We want no wars of conquest; we must avoid the temptation of territorial aggression. - William McKinley
There are no days when we should be more patriotic than on other days. - Woodrow Wilson.
