Memorials, objects that serve to remind of a person or event, have been erected for various people, occasions and organizations from the Haymarket Martyr Memorial to the National September 11th Memorial & Museum.

The Big Thicket is now host to one of these remembrances thanks to Joshua Davis, West Brook freshman.
