Brothers and Sisters of Our Order
Although a beautiful monument was erected at his gravesite in 1894,
in the Rose Hill Cemetery in Petersburg, Illinois, the grounds around
it are in need of improvement. What we are proposing is a Memorial
Plaza, a paved signature brick plaza that is consistent with memorial
designs of the Grand Army of the Republic from the 1880's to 1920's.
Signature bricks can be purchased in three sizes,
8 x 8/$150, 8 x 16/$250, & 16 x 16/$500.
Donations, brick or bench orders can be mailed to:
The City of Petersburg
Banjamin Stephenson Account
P.O. Box 139
Petersburg, IL 62675
(Write on the lower left memo line of your check "Stephenson Plaza")
DO TO A HICCUP IN THE PROCESS, BRICK ORDERS ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING LONG DELAYS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE WHILE WE REMEDY THE SITUATION.
Through our efforts dear Brothers and Sisters we can create a fitting memorial site to do honor to the man who created the organization to which we owe our very existence.
In Fraternity, Charity and Loyalty
The Doctor Benjamin F. Stephenson Site Committee
