Old Abe Veterans Memorial

Dedicated May 1987

In honor of the men and women of the Park Falls area who have served or are currently serving in the Armed Forces of the United States defending our freedoms and the principles of democracy, and especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and were Killed-In-Action during the wars and conflicts of the United States of America. This memorial further commemorates Park Falls as the birthplace of Old Abe the War Eagle, famed mascot of Company C, 8th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment during America's Civil War.

On this site, August 5th, 1995, Wisconsin State Highway 13 was dedicated as the POW/MIA Memorial Highway by authority of Wisconsin Act 396, honoring all prisoners-of-war, ex-prisoners of war, and those currently or were formerly missing-in-action in which the United States has engaged.
