Veterans War Memorial

Cumming’s original Veterans War Memorial is located at 301 Veterans Memorial Boulevard, one block from the city square. The memorial pays homage to the sons and daughters of Cumming and Forsyth County who served their country on both foreign and American soil. Engraved into the granite pillars, on permanent display, you will find the names of the brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives for our great country.
In 2023, it was decided by Mayor Troy Brumbalow and City Leadership that the Cumming Veterans War Memorial would be relocated and updated at the Cumming City Center. The new Cumming Veterans War Memorial is located at the Cumming City Center, around the reflecting pool at the rear of the Lou Sobh Amphitheater. Elements of the original Veterans War Memorial were either relocated or recreated for use at the new memorial. Additionally, the new Veterans War Memorial features plaques honoring the three national Veterans Service Organizations with chapters in Forsyth County: The Veterans of Foreign War, American Legion, and Vietnam Veterans of America, as well as descriptions of all major conflicts from the Civil War through today.
This monument is open to the public year-round and serves as the grounds for our annual Memorial Day Ceremonies including The Avenue Of Flags put on display each year. Each flag hoisted in the Avenue of Flags is dedicated to a veteran that served in active duty during times of peace or during conflict. The official ceremonies begin at 11am, each Friday before Memorial Day Weekend. Join us on this glorious day to celebrate our freedom and those who fought to preserve it.
