Memorial in Hillsborough County

Background

Back in the 1980’s, Hillsborough County officials and local veterans came together to establish and fund development of a Veterans’ Park facility. The site selected was originally called Tesawee Park which was later designated Veterans’ Memorial Park located on U.S. 301 along the Cross Channel Canal. A small museum was constructed on the site to display military artifacts and to act as a gathering place for small groups. In 1992, county officials and veteran advocates erected the Freedom Memorial to honor all members of the military, both living and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
