Adjacent to its early “Quad Garden,” the Federated Garden Clubs of Springfield decided to honor area veterans with a Blue Star Memorial Marker, dedicated on Flag Day in 2015. A Gold Star Memorial was added in 2022 to honor families of the armed services.
A special project of the Federated Garden Clubs honors all who have served in the armed forces and the family members of service people thanking them for their sacrafice. Two bronze plaques can be found near the original Nathanael Greene flagpole near the entry drive parking lot.
