Read the speech printed alongside the memorial---it's kind of poignant for us hippie wannabes. Worth a stop!

It just takes a few minutes to see but saying you've been there will last forever. We actually stopped off to grab a quick Geocach. I would love to meet the person who wanted to build this tribute. Stop off and say you've been.

The first time I was here I stayed in town for a couple of nights with my sister such a neat place, And cool monument. The second time I was here we were on our way Home and stopped in town so I could show the monument to my son and have dinner. Just kind a neat something to see.

Off the beaten track, this little memorial made me smile. Nicely landscaped and very unique, I'll be back after the Broomcorn Festival to get a picture...in a tie-dyed shirt...

Onergrown, neglected, and unloved but worth stopping for a photo for the fun of it. Off the beaten path. Not much else to see or do in this town. Warning. Many places are closed and look deserted. Some are closed on Monday (?). This town needs a little more civic pride !

We came looking for the geocache at the memorial so it was a neat place to hide a geocache and to learn about the memorial. It was fun looking at the abstract art pieces. Is it worth the trip to stop and look....for the geocache yes!

There is af small " memorial ??" with small metal pieces and a statement describing the artist and saying that Pres. Kennedy (Camelot, as he called him) helped bring the morals of the country down which he thought was a good thing and President Reagan throwing that out and bringing back more strict, judgemental codes back in. I wasn't impressed... More

I didn't think it was anything great. It looks like it was something that maybe people don't really pay attention to.

The story behind the art. I am not someone that looks at abstract art and marvels at what it represents , but when i read the plaques explanation it made all the sense in the world,this and the Lawn Rangers are truly Amazing Arcola gems.
