Remembering, Honoring, and Paying Tribute to the Fallen of War 1812

The historical Peace Monument and Garden located in  historic Downtown Monroe were dedicated on August 19, 2017

The Peace Garden

Our forefathers paved the way to our independence as a result of the Battle of the River Raisin during the War of 1812. The Peace Garden is located north of the Monroe County History Society's office at 22 West Second Street in Monroe, Michigan

The Peace Monument

This beautiful monument commemorates the 200 years of peace enjoyed between the United States, Great Britain and Canada. The garden enhances the bronze sculpture and mirrors the peace sculpture in Monroe's sister city in Amherstberg, Ontario


The bronze sculpture on the base commemorates the peace among our nations. The base of the monument is constructed of black granite that tells the story of the sacrifice and bravery of our ancestors

Our Sponsors

We are grateful to our generous sponsors who made this Peace Monument Garden  possible

Memorial to fallen soldiers who died defending Monroe.
