Big Beaver Borough’s Veterans Memorial was dedicated in November, 1995, thanks to all the hard work of the Memorial Committee. The Memorial was dedicated to all the area residents who served their country in the armed forces.
Daniel Cunning, Big Beaver’s first Mayor, wanted to use the stones from the foundation of his barn for the monument. Eventually Ruth Cunning, Daniel’s wife donated the barn stones to the Borough. When the Memorial Committee received state and federal grants, construction began. The memorial includes park benches, walkways, a small park space and the monument itself. It sits in front of the Borough’s Municipal Building.
