Veterans Memorial


The memorial is located at the corner of Nightingale St & Veterans Memorial Blvd.

About the Memorial

Former City Council member Mike Knight had a desire for many years to honor veterans that have ties to the city of Andover. He initiated the naming of Veterans Memorial Boulevard (formerly 152nd Lane NW) back in 2004 and continued on to see that a memorial would be constructed.

Granite Memorial Plaques

Memorial engravings are the perfect opportunity to individually recognize the contributions of those who have served in the military for our country. Be a part of the memorial by having your name (or a veteran of your choice*) engraved in a granite plaque. Plaques are $300 each. 

*Veterans must meet eligibility requirement
