Midland Square Veterans Memorial

Midland Square Veterans Memorial is part of Midland Square Park created in downtown Tremonton where the historic Midland Hotel once stood. The memorial was conceived by A. C. Christensen of Elwood, Utah, who supervised its construction. Mr. Christensen was a veteran of World War II, and spent three and a half years in a Japanese prison camp. The memorial consists of a block-shaped monument displaying portraits of the four Borgstrom brothers from
nearby Thatcher, Utah who died within six months of each other in 1944, during World War II. Jackie Allred Hunlow sculpted the portraits. Overlooking the monument is a larger-than-life bronze statue of a soldier gazing at the four brothers. The statue stands 7-feet 7-inches tall and was sculpted by local artist Val Lewis. Surrounding the memorial are stainless steel plaques where the names of over 3,000 local veterans are etched according to the wars in which they served. The memorial was dedicated on August 18, 2001. Funding to construct the mural was provided by private donations.
