There are many aspects to a community that contribute to its development, culture and people. Bowie’s citizens have always stepped up to the plate to serve their country. Stop in and see the three veteran’s memorials located outside the Bowie Senior Citizens Project. The stone one pictured at the top honors the World War I veterans and those who fell.

The taller cylindrical marker honors the Confederate soldiers, many of which when they returned home enjoyed homecoming events and activities at Pelham Park Confederate Soldiers Camp, now home of Bowie’s largest park, Pelham Park.

The other tall gray marker honors the Company B Battalion 111th Engineers, many of which were from Bowie and served during WWII.

Take a moment remember their service and their place in the community’s history.
