The Baxter Veteran's Memorial was designed and constructed by Baxter American Legion Post #493 and numerous volunteers during late summer 1997 and was dedicated in November of that same year.  The original memorial is made up of 2 walls which include over 300 names of Baxter area residents who served in the military, beginning with the War of 1812, each engraved on a brick mounted within the walls.  The original memorial also includes a flag pole and monument.  In 2014 Legion Post #493 determined the need to extend the original memorial to include 2 additional walls due to requests for additional veteran bricks.  Along with construction of the two additional walls, two military statues and two additional flag poles were added.
