Heinze Park G.A.R. Memorial (Rifle, Colorado)


A grey granite marker engraved on four sides to commemorate Civil War veterans. The marker is composed of three blocks: the topmost block is of polished dark granite; the middle block is of smooth, light-grey granite; and the base block is of rough-carved, light-grey granite. The middle block includes a drinking fountain, restored in 2017. The marker was erected by the citizens of Rifle, Colorado to honor the G.A.R. and L. of G.A.R. and is located in the center of Heinze Park. The memorial was dedicated on Memorial Day, May 30, 2017, and re-dedicated 100 years later on May 30, 2017.
