Benbow Veterans Memorial


T

he history of this park started with the dedication of Benbow Sidewalk Park in 1991. The revitalization to Benbow Veterans Memorial Park included saving the 2 mature mesquite trees on site, brick fundraising campaign, bench seating and a black granite memorial wall. Inscribed names of Buckeye residents who served the nation in wartime are remembered on the wall that replaces an older monument in the town.

Patterned after the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., Buckeye’s wall contains the names of more than 900 men and women who served in the armed services from the Spanish-American War through 1992.

The park is on the former Benbow Sidewalk Park. It was the home of the Benbow family, which operated a gas station and garage on the site.
