Rock Rapids, Iowa
A granite stone and paving brick area surround the base of the flag pole in front of the former high school. The floor of the site has spaces with engraved 4"x8" bricks and 8"x8", 8"x12", and 8"x16" granite pavers. The final touch to the project was the placement of solid granite benches on the perimeter of the patio area.
Those were chose to support this project and preserve some of the history of the former high school building got to have his or her name, a loved one's name, a farm, a business, or family engraved on a brick or granite paver. Major contributions are honored with a name/logo engraved on a solid granite bench to be placed on the perimeter of the area.
