About Venedocia Memorial Park
“Serene”, “tranquil”, and “beautiful” are words that come to mind when describing memorial park. The 3-acre park is immediately adjacent to, but not part of, the Venedocia Cemetery just west of town. The park contains flower beds, lawn chairs, benches, birdhouses, sundials, and the war memorial. It is a place where you can sit quietly and enjoy the birds and nature and perhaps think about loved ones and ancestors buried in the adjacent cemetery. The park is owned by Salem Church and administered by a board of trustees.
The War Memorial within the park contains large stones bearing the names of all community members who have seen active service in this country’s wars, from the War of 1812 through the Persian Gulf war. A separate list of community members who have served in the military during peace time is also included. Of these names, those buried in the Venedocia Cemetery and the nearby Horeb cemetery are marked with a special symbol. Every year on Memorial Day a service of remembrance is held at the memorial, usually with the participation of the Lincolnview High School Band.
