Veterans of the Ozarks

In 2008, a nonprofit gardening group established a
Veterans Memorial Garden in the heart of the
“Music Show Capital of America” Branson, Missouri.

Over the past few years, this Memorial Garden honoring our Veterans, has grown into a beautiful landscaped hillside with a profusion of flowering trees, shrubs and plants of all kinds.

The Memorial Garden, located at the intersection of Hwy. 76 and Roark Valley Road in Branson, is visited by hundreds of Veterans and their families. It is a living tribute honoring the sacrifices made by our men and women of the military who have so gallantly served our nation.


It is the purpose of the Veterans Memorial Garden to show our appreciation to our Veterans and to say “THANKS” for their service. The citizens of Branson are dedicated to encourage and foster patriotism and provide recognition to all Veterans for their courage and willingness to serve.

Branson has been honoring America’s Veterans and active duty military personnel and their families for decades. It is part of Branson’s very heartbeat, heritage and culture. This recently dedicated Veterans Memorial Garden is yet another manifestation of how the Branson Community feels about those who have given so much for our country.

Under the guidance of a Master Gardener, the late Ben Kinel, and with the considerable efforts of many volunteers and benefactors who have given money, materials and a lot of hard work, this beautiful garden serves as a living tribute to our Veterans.

Although the beauty of the flowers and plantings will change with the seasons, the beauty and honor of what the garden represents will not.
