World War I Memorial, Bonnyview Park

Filed in Miscellaneous by on June 1, 2010 4 Comments • views: 2259

The postcard entitled “World War I Memorial Bonnyview Park” seems appropriate a day after Memorial Day, and following the vast improvements made to Veteran’s Park in Ramsey over the past few months.

World War I Memorial, Bonnyview Park

The original idea for such a park was put forth by the Village Improvement Association, a woman’s group of the time. Edwin Carpenter, the same man who donated land for St. John’s Episcopal Church, donated the tract that would be dedicated as Bonny View Park in the 1920’s. The centerpiece of the park is the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Memorial honoring veterans of the first World War.

This postcard is from the site administrator’s personal collection.
