Veterans Memorial Park

Dedicated to the Men & Women Who Have Served Our Country

A reflective memorial features a bronze statue of a young soldier entitled “Going Home” sculpted by Jonestown resident Jim Thomas. This soldier, who has served his country, waits in anticipation of his ride to return home to his loved ones.

Along with the memorial, this park also features a beautiful picnic area under the canopy of stately oak trees.

Veteran’s Memorial Park. Shelby Thomas was the model for the statue, “Coming Home” and he and his father, Jim Thomas worked together to craft the beautiful work of art. Sadly, Shelby recently passed. When the local VFW closed its doors they used their remaining money to hire Jim Thomas, renowned sculptor who lives in Jonestown to do the sculpture.
