The town of Florence has created a “Memorial Grove” on the site of the former National Guard Armory, on Florence Blvd where it becomes Tennessee Street (NE of Florence Cemetery). A monument there honors Police and Fire Heroes. There was previously a “115th Signal Battalion” marker (see page 2, Signs of the Past ) . It has been repositioned near the U.S.flagpole where it is more visible from Florence Blvd.
On November 2, 2013, a new historical marker was added to commemorate the Fort Willingham National Guard Armory
