Marker/Plaque/Monument Monday

[This is a new regular category for some Mondays. I will call it Marker/Plaque/Monument Monday. It will feature historical markers, dedication plaques & markers, including memorials to events, people & structures. It will not include individual military markers or other grave markers, although exceptions may be made for unusual markers. - JGWest]

To whom it may concern:

This plaque is in the triangle (not circle) off of Central Drive, Lake Drive & Magnolia Drive and is located about half way between the entrance and the Office building.

Alice, you are right, thanks for catching my error. I will edit this to reflect the right shape of the little "island" that this plaque stands.
