Located in Pipkin Park, the Temple to the Brave is a memorial chapel built by the Daughters of the America Revolution to honor those who died in World War I. Filled with war-related artifacts, the chapel is only open five times a year:
- Memorial Day (Last Monday in May)
- Flag Day (June 14)
- Patriot Day (September 11)
- Veterans Day (November 11)
- Pearl Harbor Anniversary (December 7)
The date of the chapel's dedication - October 18, 1932 corresponds to the day 18 years earlier when American forces suffered some the heaviest casualties of the war - just a few days before the armistice of November 11, 1918 was signed.
