NICHOLS, S.C. (WBTW) — A memorial park planned in the town of Nichols will be a place for people to gather and learn about the history of war in the United States, officials said.
The new Flagg Memorial Park will have multiple walls for bricks, with each one having the name of a fallen veteran or flood survivor.
Flood survivors from across the nation are welcome to put their names on a brick to be put on the wall. The goal is to have one place where flood victims and survivors can unite and bond.
The walls for veterans will have information about each war that took place in the United States.
Sandee Rogers, the town’s administrator, said the park will create a place of unity for every person that drives through the town.
“There’s a camaraderie that they will get from our citizens and what we’ve been through, and just that reach out hug that you’re not alone,” Rogers said.
The park is also a way to help thank everyone who has contributed to the town, she said.
Order forms for bricks can be obtained by contacting members of the town’s Beautification Committee and on the town’s Facebook page.
The Marion County Healthcare Foundation, Duke Energy, Anderson Brothers Bank, MUSC-Florence, and RJ Corman Railroad Group donated money for the project.
