The Great Walls of Glidden

Posted by Frank Kempf




The Great Walls of Glidden are dedicated to the men and women of the Glidden area who served their Country in war and peace.

The walls dedicated to the men and women who courageously served our county in peace time as well as war time, thank them for their courage, fortitude, and willingness to serve, have helped all of us to live in a free country. We thank them for believing in freedom, serving our country, and, at times, risking and even giving, their lives. The people of the Glidden area are very grateful and acknowledge their sacrafices by dedicating the three murals located in Glidden, known as the Downtown Mural, River Mural and Hill mural. The murals include full size portraits and stars recognizing these great individuals.
