AMERICAN LIBERTY ELM
Named for the original Liberty Tree, a symbol of Freedom to the Sons of Liberty and cut down by the British Redcoats in 1775.

This Liberty Elm was planted as part of a national program to restore the grace and beauty of the American elm to cities and towns across America.

Planted in memory of the Fallen Soldiers of the Waupun Area.
