This pristine historic building was built to honor those soldiers from Hancock County, IN
who made the Supreme Sacrifice in Defense of Freedom during the World War, 1917 - 1918.
There is a bronze memorial plaque on the building dedicated to the memory of war time
President Woodrow Wilson and a bronze Honor Roll plaque with the names of Hancock
County’s war heroes. The Honor Roll plaque was placed there by the Hancock County
Chapter of American War Mothers.
The Henry County Memorial Park "Spirit of the American Doughboy", by sculptor Ernest Moore Viquesney, was presented by the Henry County Chapter of the War Mothers in 1929. In honor of the centennial of World War I, the statue was refurbished and repaired and rededicated on November 11, 2018. It is now located in a newly reconstructed flag plaza outside the Memorial Park's veterans museum.
