The Walkway of Honor at Ramsey Park
The Walkway of Honor at Ramsey Park is a unique opportunity for anyone to recognize a family member, friend or special person, past or present, with an inscribed brick in their honor. We all have someone in our lives who helped shape our future, taught us life lessons or just provided a shoulder to cry on when we needed it most. What better way to show your appreciation than placing their name among others who deserve such special attention. The individual bricks, with personalized messages, will provide a lasting legacy that will be available for future generations to enjoy. The Walkway of Honor at Ramsey Park is sponsored by the Black History Museum of Warren County TN as part of their ongoing efforts to preserve the past, acknowledge the present and build for the future.
