The idea of a Jackson County Veterans Park was first presented by Robert Teeples in 1985. In 1993 Jackson County set aside 2 acres for park development. In 1995 three feet of sand was hauled in and leveled by the 229th Engrs. WIARNG. Then the project laid idle for 5 yrs. In Jan. 2000 the officers listed above took over this project. With much support from residents & businesses of Jackson County, Guard units (107th Sparta and 1158th BRF), veterans organizations, (American Legion, AMVETS, Disabled American Veterans, Forty and Eight, Veterans of Foreign Wars and their Auxiliaries) the park took shape. On the various brass plates pertaining to certain projects there are lists of the contributors. If we missed anyones name we apologize, it was not intentional. The Jackson County Veterans Park Development Committee, Inc. says Thanks!
