World War One Service Memorial, Hanna Wyoming



This is a memorial in Hanna Wyoming dedicated to all from the region who served in World War One.  Hanna is a very small town today, and the number of names on this memorial is evidence of the town once being significantly more substantially sized than it presently is.

The memorial is located on what was the Lincoln Highway at the time, but which is now a Carbon County Highway.  This was likely a central town location at the time the memorial was placed.

  1. The plaque on this memorial was apparently recently stolen, according to something I read in today's newspaper, but rediscovered in a ditch by a town maintenance worker. The nearby school is being closed, and there's talk of making the grounds into a park featuring this memorial with the names of 114 Hanna residents who served in World War One.
