Courthouse Square Memorial Bricks - Order Form

The Kewaunee County Courthouse Square Memorial Project started on November 15, 2008. The Courthouse Square and Veterans Memorial is an attractively landscaped park traversed by red brick pathways, with two distinct sections. The first section is located along the Juneau Street Veterans' Plaza and dedicated to memorializing Kewaunee veterans who served during war and peace time eras.

The second section is located on the Kewaunee County Historical Plaza and it is dedicated to the residents and organizations of Kewaunee County.

Memorial bricks are available in two sizes at different contribution levels. For $75, memorials will appear on a beautifully engraved 4X8 inch rectangular brick which will grace the walkway of Courthouse Square. And for $150, memorials will appear on an 8X8 inch square brick on the walkway. These bricks are of the highest quality, the engraving will not fade or wear away over time and the continued care and maintenance of the walkway has been assured for the future.

All contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law and deposited into a special account designated exclusively for the development, maintenance, and improvements in and surrounding the Veterans' Memorial and Historical areas.

Please click the order form link above if you are interested. If you have questions, call the County Clerk's office at 920-388-7120 for community member memorials, or the Kewaunee County Veterans' office at 920-388-7198 for veteran memorials.
