Located in Pipkin Park, the Temple to the Brave was built by the Daughters of the America Revolution in memorial of those who died in World War I.
The date of the 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.
