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 Temple to the Brave was opened on October 19, 1932, dedicated to Texas military of all wars, and the hope for world peace. This date was especially significant to the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), the sponsors of this war memorial, as it represented the anniversary of British Gen. Charles Cornwallis' surrender to George Washington - effectively ending the Revolutionary War.
