World War II Memorial

A bronze plaque resides inside the Museum listing the 221 residents of Ormond Beach who served in World War II. Twelve of those names appear on the plaque's ★ Gold Star List, which recognizes those who lost their life during combat1,3.

Funds donated by Claus & Elsa Wiedemann were used to make the original brass plaque, which listed the names of 144 veterans. As was custom of that time, a separate plaque commemorating Ormond's Black veterans of WWII was placed in the old Reading Room. When that structure, which was located on the corner of U.S. 1 and Tomoka Avenue, was demolished, the plaque recognizing those 77 names was lost.

Ormond Beach WWII Honor Roll

An additional plaque located outside the Museum on the west side of the property lists the names of three local men who gave their lives in service to our country in World War I.
