Wilcox Park is home to several Memorials including flowering shrubs, trees, benches and monuments.  We have three Memorial programs that are available to the general public.  A tree, for example, can be dedicated to a loved one either as a Memorial or as an Honorary dedication.  Please refer to this link for the specifics of these programs: Memorial Policies

The Library Building itself is the oldest and largest memorial on the grounds of Wilcox Park. 

It opened its doors in 1894 and is a memorial to the Civil War soldiers. 

For more information on Memorials, please contact the Park Superintendent at 401.596.2877 x334
