In Memory of Mayor Margaret Martin

—Honoring Our Veterans —

Dedicated in 2007, the Kingston Veterans Monument, vision in 1999 by Mrs. Nellie Margaret Harris Applin, stands in honor of the lives of four hundred brave men and women whom served their country with valor, honor and dignity. This memorial resulted from the continuous work of Mrs. Nellie Margaret Harris Applin, who solely, for three and a half years researched and organized this information, which give insight to the dedicated efforts of these brave men and women. In 2002 Representative Bill Cummings, working with Mrs. Applin and Mayor Margo Martin, introduced Resolution Act 61 (HR949)-Georgia General Assembly to transfer state-owned land to the City of Kingston for the Veterans Monument. April 8, 2004, State of Georgia-Properties Commission authorized the transfer of approximately five acres of land to the City of Kingston. Funding for Kingston Veterans Monument, no easy task, was made possible by in-kind donations; golf and softball tournaments; auction
