Veterans Hall volunteers are planning an engraved brick
walkway to honor veterans.
A veteran or a family member may order an
engraved brick in honor of their veteran.
The walkway will be around the Veterans Hall
building at the Schaghticoke Fairgrounds.
Our objective is to create a lasting memorial
which will enhance Veterans Hall.
Veterans Hall is comprised of a group of volunteers that
saw a need and opportunity to have a local exhibit that
was overdue. When this project was started it was to
honor all veterans and collect the names of the veterans
from Rensselaer County.
With the positive feedback and support from the
community we have expanded to include Saratoga and
Washington county veterans.
We will continue to categorize veterans by towns
and cities within the county, branch of service,
approximate dates served, and any other pertinent
This information is in a comprehensive form and
on display for the public to view during the fair.
Community members can come to the fair or an open
house and look up their loved one or friend.
There is also a binder for veterans outside of
these three counties.
The Veterans Hall is a work in progress and represents a
desire to show respect to the men and women who have
served our country.
The response from veterans and those who love
them has been very satisfying.
One of our objectives is to tell a story of their
service with memorabilia and pictures.
Family and friends have enjoyed coming in to see
their personal contributions to the Veterans Hall
whether it be a picture, name or memorabilia.
bricked walkway will be a wonderful asset to the
Veterans Hall building and an additional way to honor
all those that served and sacrificed!
