About our markers
Each year the streets of the City of Duluth are lined with more than 800 markers and flags, representing those who served in the armed forces. The flags and markers are on display the week before and after Memorial Day, and also the week before and after Veterans Day.
For additional information on this memorial, please contact the Department of Public Works at 770-476-2454. You may also view the current listing of the veterans names, including the location of each marker and service. If you had a marker on 3187 West Lawrenceville Street by the old City Hall bldg, they have been relocated further down W. Lawrenceville Street towards McClure Bridge. Section 18 and 19 (by The District in Duluth) on Buford Hwy have been moved to Buford Hwy by Century 21. These changes are temporary due to construction, and your marker will be returned to its original location as soon as possible. All markers in Section 36 (by New Days Church at 3468 SR 120) have been moved permanently to Section 35 at 3420 SR 120 (by the Nations Bank).
All new markers this holiday will be placed in Section 73 (at 3400 McClure Bridge Road). Due to the construction in the Downtown area, several veteran markers in Section 18 and 19 have been temporarily moved. Markers on Buford Hwy (close to The District in Duluth) have been moved close to BB&T Bank at the guard rail. Section 41 (in front of Old City Hall) will be moved to 3606 W. Lawrenceville Street.
