About Shotwell Memorial Park

On Memorial Day, May 30, 1936, the Veterans Memorial Park was dedicated and the plaque containing the names of the World War I veterans was unveiled. Unfortunately, this would not be the last time Skaneateles would dedicate the memorial.

In 1943, the Skaneateles Chamber of Commerce organized the formation of a committee to create a public honor roll of the men and women serving in the armed forces during World War II. The Honor Roll was placed on a board, hung in front of the old Brounstein site, and raised high above the sidewalk so that it would not be vandalized. It was dedicated at the Memorial Day ceremony on May 30, 1943.
