In 2015, the library partnered with the Nederland Parks & Recreation Department on its Veterans Park Project. The vision for the project includes providing an online database so that people may learn more about the history of the veterans being honored in the Park. Having accurate records to add veterans’ names and to describe their personal stories will be an integral part of this process. The database will include a variety of photographs, documents, as well as interviews conducted as part of the Library's oral history project. Click here to access the database.
Do you know of a veteran (living or deceased) that is not in the database? To submit their name for inclusion, please have a Veterans Information Form completed and return it to the Marion & Ed Hughes Public Library at 2712 Nederland Avenue, Nederland, TX 77627.
