This veterans park along the main thoroughfare through Florence Texas honors all veterans of Texas wars of the 20th century. A series of monuments honor each separate war and are arranged in a circle around a flagpole. The outside of the monuments are comprised of natural stone and the granite inner portions are carved into pointed “V”s. The inside portions contain the inscribed names of all those from the area who served. On the sides of the World War II monument are also inscribed names from the Civil War and the Spanish-American War. On the base of the flagpole are inscribed the names of local men who gave their lives in these wars.
