Museum Memories: Nov. 11, 2017

In honor of Veterans Day, we share this photo from the Doc Chase collection.  This beautiful memorial constructed after World War I commemorated those veterans from Cordova who had lost their lives while serving.

Located above the Masonic Hall on the hill between Upper and Lower Davis Avenue, the monument was dismantled at some point. Does anyone know when? The plaque honoring the veterans now is in the Cordova Historical Society collection, but the cannon has yet to be re-discovered.

This photo came from the archives and collections of the Cordova Historical Society housed within the museum. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Stop by to see our new travelling exhibit in the Copper River Gallery, “Harry Potter’s Magical World.”
