Monument Proudly (re)Displayed

After two years of fundraising, planning, and negotiating, the Civil War Monument has found a new home. Soon to be joining the 1927 monument on the northeast corner of the courthouse lawn are the two Civil War cannons dating back to 1858.

The Montezuma CLG group, in the hopes of preserving and showcasing history within our community, spearheaded this project with the help of Montezuma Community Development, the Blakely-Stevens American Legion, and the Poweshiek County Supervisors. We were also the reicipient of a generous donation from the Poweshiek County Alliance, without whom, none of this would have been possible.

A huge thank you to Sheets Excavating and Bushong Construction for their help in making this move happen!
