The Dogwood Vietnam Memorial, a project of the Charlottesville Dogwood Festival, Inc., was conceived late in 1965 after news arrived of the first casualty of the Vietnam War from this area. Consisting of a plaza with a plaque and flagpole, the memorial was dedicated on 20 April 1966 and is believed to be the nation's first public Vietnam veteran's memorial. The site honors all who served the United States during that war, especially those from Charlottesville and Albemarle County who gave their lives. The memorial, known as "the hill that heals," was renovated and expanded in 2014-2015.
