Memorial Grove

Directly adjacent to the Museum lies a 2.5 acre Memorial Grove, designed for contemplation and reflection before vistors return to their everyday lives. Anchored by a grove of elm trees, the space features a 325-foot stone wall, with three cascades of water and a reflecting pool lining the basin, creating a cohesive space for remembrance, inspiration and the recognition of service.
