Black Hawk County
Memorial Hall


104 West Fifth Street

Memorial Hall honors all veterans of U.S. military service. The library on the top floor includes such wartime mementos as uniforms, medals and weapons. The building has a more peaceful purpose, however. Its meeting rooms, kitchen and dining area are used regularly for gatherings of 17 local patriotic and military groups.

Memorial Hall was built in 1915-16 with the help of a special $14,000 tax levy. The project was sponsored by local chapters of the Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.) to honor soldiers and sailors who died in the Civil War. The cornerstone, laid on September 2, 1915, contains current newspapers, lists of members of patriotic organizations and rosters of the three G.A.R. posts that existed in Black Hawk County at that time.
