The Colonel Robert McFarland Chapter of the Sons of the Revolution’s brick sale for the upcoming Hamblen County Courthouse Veterans Memoria is currently underway. The goal is to get 400 bricks sold by this fall. Organizers say they are a little more than halfway towards the goal.
The bricks will be placed on the Veterans Memorial outside the Hamblen County Courthouse – located on the side of the courthouse facing First North Street.
The project was designed to honor veterans from the various wars throughout American history with a proper memorial and flagpole. Ground has already broken on the project. The hope is to hold the dedication ceremony for the memorial this Veteran’s Day.
