WWII Monument
Over 5,000 Bedford County men and women served in uniform during World War II and 170 Bedford County men were killed during the war.

Our effort to place a WWII Monument to honor these men and women is nearly complete. Design and development are done and construction has begun.

The WWII Monument dedication / debut will be September 6th at 11AM near the corner of Penn and Juliana St. in Bedford PA.

Soon, it will stand to remind future generations of the price our WWII Veterans paid so long ago. If you have any questions, call (814) 623-1771.

CONSTRUCTION HAS BEGUN

Kyle Brown is doing site excavation. Clarence (Pickle) Deremer will build the concrete pad/border. Kyle Brown will place the Honor Walk Bricks and perform site landscaping. Troy Wigfield and Travis Collins of BC Stone will cut and install the granite septagon pedestal.

Our sculptor, Wayne Hyde is traveling to our foundry in Montana to guide the final stage of the bronzing process. He’ll transport the bronze statue to Bedford County by August.

Every one of these individuals has given their commitment to excellence; quality craftsmanship expressed in concrete, brick, granite and bronze.

These are the craftsmen who will make Bedford County’s WWII Monument one of the finest in the country.


The Honor Walk
A brick walkway, called THE HONOR WALK will surround the WWII Monument, including bricks engraved with the names and service branch of WWII veterans. Anyone can buy a brick on the Honor Walk, but only the name/military service of WWII Veterans will be placed on THE HONOR WALK.

BRICK ORDERS FOR THE HONOR WALK ARE STILL BEING ACCEPTED AT $150 PER BRICK.
