Visit the beautiful 15 pillar star-shaped O'Fallon Veterans' Monument in O'Fallon, Illinois.  Lovely to
see during the day and when lit at night, the Monument is located off of North Seven Hills Road on
the south side of East Wesley Drive, just northwest of the O'Fallon Safety Center (Police Station)
and the O'Fallon YMCA.  The street address is 737 E. Wesley Dr.  Parking, including handicap
spaces, is available at the site.  

The O'Fallon Veterans' Monument is the largest in the area and is located on a beautifully
landscaped acre of ground.  Enjoy a moment of meditation seated on one of several benches taking
in the sounds and serenity of a pond and its fountains.  

The Monument is a continuous tribute to O'Fallon's veterans with names being added twice a year.  
Those received between March 1 and August 31 will be inscribed in time for Veterans Day.  Those
received between September 1 and February 29 will be inscribed in time for Memorial Day.  Any
honorably separated veteran who has ever lived within  O'Fallon Township High School District 203
or in O'Fallon Township is eligible for inscription.  

For your convenience, a kiosk directory, providing a personal history and the pillar location of each
veteran's name, is located at the entrance to the Monument.  Applications for inscription can be
downloaded on this website.  Cost is $100 per name.  Our mailing address is PO Box 406, O'Fallon
IL  62269.

On May 11, 2015, O’Fallon Parks Department employees discovered that two pillars at the O’Fallon Veterans'
Monument were
irreparably damaged.  The O’Fallon Veterans' Monument Association wants to thank the
O’Fallon Police Department and City officials for their response.  The pillars will be replaced with the
veterans names
re-engraved.  The headings on the damaged pillars are Patriotism, Unity, Allegiance and
While the specific cause of the damage is unknown, there were strong storms in the area that
Sunday evening (May 10) and damage in other parts of O’Fallon was reported.  

Tax deductible donations for rebuilding the engraved pillars
can be sent to PO Box 406,O'Fallon, IL  62269.
