Carver County Veterans Memorial

UPDATED FEB. 2021

The Carver County Veterans Memorial and Registry is located in Mayer, on the southwest corner of Ash Ave. (State Hwy 25), and 1st Street (County Rd 30), and is open to the public.

It includes a row of paver stones, set in concrete, with veterans’ names imprinted on them.

The centerpiece of the memorial is a glass display case, built into the main wall.

The display case will be reserved for memorials for service members killed in action (KIA), missing in action (MIA), or prisoners of war (POW). Each person’s uniform and biographies will be displayed for 30 to 60 days.

The memorial is designed with large display panels, etched with images to honor the various military branches. 

A paver stone garden at the memorial contains the names of veterans from all over the county. Each paver has been purchased by a military family member, and is engraved with a veteran’s name, branch of service, and era in which they served.

The Carver County Veterans Memorial and Registry is located near the Dakota Rail Regional Trail trailhead in Mayer.
