Work begins on NW Indiana war memorial delayed by recession


Site work is underway in northwestern Indiana for a war memorial that was delayed for years by the Great Recession after the 2008 financial crisis.

Crews began clearing trees Wednesday in Crown Point for the memorial, which will feature three separate monuments: one for World War I veterans, another for World War II veterans and one for victims of the Holocaust.

The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that a walkway between the two war memorials will be lined with plaques describing key events between those two conflicts.

Planners hope to have the memorial finished by 2021, and no later than 2022.
