“Buy A Brick Program”

Honor a loved one, preserve a special memory for yourself, or give a gift with an engraved Brick placed in the walkway at Ritter Park’s Rose Garden.  The Rose Garden is the “Eighth Best Public Rose Garden in America” for the 2010 America’s Best Rose Garden Competition by AARS.  The Bricks would make a cherished Wedding Gift or Sympathy Acknowledgment for your family or friends.  You are allotted three lines per brick with up to twelve spaces per line.  The cost is $75 per Brick.  Contact the GHPRD to purchase a brick for the Rose Garden Walkway.                                                                                                                 


  “Memorial Bell Tower”

There is a 500 pound Bronze Bell with etched historic images at Spring Hill Cemetery displayed in the Memorial Bell Tower.  The images portray the Marshall Memorial, the Veteran’s Memorial Arch, the Flags of the Healing Field and the Pentagon Symbol encouraging us to always remember.  The Bell tolls on the hour during the day.  The Memorial Bell Tower has an active carillon that also can play music.  The Bell Tower was erected with donations acquired from the Healing Field and requires additional donations to fully fund the cost of the Tower and Bell.  Tax-deductible donations can be made to the Foundation for the Tri-State Community, Inc.  Make checks payable to FTSC, note “Bell Tower” on the memo line and mail to the Foundation for the Tri-State Community, Inc., Post Office Box 2096, Ashland, KY 41105-2096.  


“World Trade Center Artifact Memorial" 

The World Trade Center Artifact Memorial was unveiled and dedicated on 9/11/17 and will serve as a lasting Memorial to those that gave their lives in the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks. The steel rails in the Memorial are actually from the PATH train that brought people to the Terminals of the World Trade Center. The track pieces are exactly as they were found under the collapse of Tower One.

The Memorial was constructed in 2017 and exposed aggregate concrete was used with Paver Stones separating the sections of concrete.  The three sided structure’s walls are also exposed aggregate concrete with three hand-carved Bluestone Eagles embedded in the walls.  The center of the Memorial Plaza has Pavers etched with the timeline of events of 9/11/2001 and other significant dates.

You can purchase one of a very limited supply of Pavers that will be installed in the Memorial Plaza with the inscription of your choice but are limited to 12 characters per line with a maximum of 6 lines for $300.00. 

Choosing to “Never Forget”, or to honor a loved one, in this Memorial Plaza will become part of the History of Spring Hill Cemetery as the World Trade Center Artifact Memorial will be listed on the National 9/11 Memorial Register.
