Memorial Hall Commission

Veterans Memorial Hall / Soldiers and Sailors Park
The Memorial Hall Commission is developing Soldiers and Sailors Park at 655 Cedar Street. The park will display granite monuments and bronze plaques along the 400-foot brick walkway. The walkway will begin near the west side of the 5th Street bridge and meander through the beautifully landscaped park to the 4th Street bridge. The monuments and plaques will commemorate all wars and conflicts our service men and women have fought in.

To help pay for the development of our Soldiers and Sailors Park, the commission is selling bricks to honor anyone who has served in the military. These bricks will make up the entire walkway.

The name of the veteran, the branch of the military and the dates served will be inscribed on each brick. The location of your bricks will be in a master file inside Veterans Memorial Hall.

Bricks may be purchased for $50.00 each. Each brick will have three (3) lines of inscription with thirteen (13) letters per line.

Order forms for the bricks may be picked up at any Waterloo fire station, City Hall, Waterloo Public Library, Waterloo Center for the Arts, and the Leisure Services office or printed from the online printable form(pdf). Completed forms and checks made payable to Memorial Hall Commission may be sent to:
