Woodlawn Cemetery unveiled two monuments on Memorial Day Monday.
The memorial bench and obelisk monument were dedicated during a morning ceremony. The Memorial Bench was placed in Section “O”, where unknown African Americans are buried. The Obelisk Monument, which will house cremated remains in the base and will be donated to two unclaimed decedents in the future, was placed in the Cypress Section of Woodlawn Cemetery.
The monuments were made possible by a grant from the city of Las Vegas.
