Callahan County Courthouse

The walls of the hallway of the second floor of the Callahan County Courthouse are lined with photographs of soldiers who were killed in World War 1, World War 11 and the Korean Conflict.  Because they are under glass the photographs did not "photograph" well.  The images picked up reflections from the overhead light and the reflection of the photographer.

Cross Plains Area Veterans Memorial

Contains the names of over 3000 Cross Plains area veterans who served in wars from the Civil War to Afghanistan.  Veterans Memorial Website contains a close up of each stone and a list on the names on the memorial, plus photos of some of the veterans.
