The Allamakee County Freedom Rock was unveiled in a ceremony at the Waukon City Park Friday, September 11 as a tribute to the many Veterans of the local community both past and present. Fundraising is currently underway to cover the cost of the Freedom Rock and future costs for landscaping and further development of the Freedom Rock location.

Waukon State Bank recently contributed $5,000 to the Allamakee County Freedom Rock project.

“Waukon State Bank is very pleased to donate $5,000 to this very worthwhile project,” Prestemon shared. “All 99 counties in Iowa already have or will soon have a Freedom Rock to commemorate the service of local Veterans. We are proud that Allamakee County is now added to this list. Thank you to everyone that was involved in this project.” Standard photo by Robin Johnson.
