Williamson County's Veteran's Park Paver Project

Williamson County’s Veterans Service Office manages Veterans Park at Five Points in downtown Franklin. Located at the intersection of Main Street, Columbia Avenue and Fifth Avenues, this Park contains pavers inscribed with the names of Williamson County veterans who served in conflicts from the Revolutionary War through the Gulf Wars. 

Currently no pavers honor the more than 300 enslaved men from Williamson County who went to serve in the Civil War as soldiers in the US Army and Navy or as body servants for the Confederate Army. This project serves to rectify that omission. 

This website is a way to make it easy for the community to sponsor pavers for each US Army or Navy veteran or Confederate Army body servant from Williamson County. The price to purchase a paver is $65. That is the same charge you would pay to buy a paver through the Veterans Service Office.  There is no additional cost to sponsor a paver through this project. If purchased before February 1st the paver will be installed by the following Memorial Day. Pavers are only installed once each year, so if you purchase a paver after February 1st you will need to wait until the following year for your sponsored paver to be installed.  The pavers are inscribed with the name of each man, his rank, branch of service and date of death.  You can learn more on the Veterans Service Office website: http://www.williamsoncounty-tn...
