by Lange-Ostrander Post 62
American Legion

The memorial is located at historic Columbus Fireman's Park, located on eastbound Park Avenue / Wisconsin Route 73 entrance to Fireman's Park, just east of its intersection with Ingalsbe Street, at 1049 Park Avenue, Columbus, Wisconsin 53925.

NOTE: Once inside the entrance, follow the one-way road (Veterans Memorial Way) until you see the children's playground on your right. The memorial is adjacent to the playground. (The memorial may not be easily visible when leaves are on the trees . . .)

NOTE: The base of the veterans memorial was erected in 1929, along with a different memorial. That memorial was removed, and the memorial in these photos replaced it. See below for vintage postcard of original memorial.

These markers / memorials are also at this location:

Pavers on the platform floor . . .

The memorial is adjacent to a children's playground.

Follow Veterans Memorial Way to the memorial's location.
The memorial is across the park, adjacent to the playground
visible to the left of the "Rest Haven" building in the center of the photo.
