Happy Memorial Day


The Memorial Day we celebrate started off as a way to honor the patriotic dead of the Civil War by decorating their graves.  The first observation was held in spring of 1866.  It was first known as Decoration Day, but was later renamed to Memorial Day in 1882.


Waterloo, NY was recognized as the “Birthplace of Memorial Day” in May of 1966 by the United States Government.
