Peoria County Memorials and Monuments

Ongoing Maintenance Fund and Engraved Pavers

Peoria County continues to accept donations for the ongoing maintenance of the war memorials located in the Courthouse Plaza. Specifically, interested individuals looking to honor a veteran in their lives may purchase an inscription in a brick paver, which are located around both the World War I & II Veterans Memorial and A Final Salute memorial. The veteran does not have to be a resident of Peoria County, and alternatively, you may wish to purchase a paver to thank a group or all veterans. 

You can download the form below, or contact the Peoria County Clerk's Office, located inside the Peoria County Courthouse, at (309) 672-6059 or email if you have any questions.
