The Century Wall stands in Black River Overlook Park, along the west bank of the Black River, gazing toward the heart of downtown Pocahontas, beckoning those who pass by to stop, to think, to marvel, to enjoy, to celebrate, with 100 Americans, literally “etched in stone,” who in the 20th Century, has made a significant contribution to shaping this great nation of ours.
The Century Wall was dedicated on July 4, 2000.
