The Wall That Heals will be on display in downtown Hartland, at Nixon Park, 175 E. Park Avenue.

Since its unveiling on Veterans Day 1996, The Wall That Heals, a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., has visited nearly 700 communities across the United States, bringing the memorial’s healing legacy to millions. This traveling exhibit, including a mobile Education Center, enables veterans and their families to experience the memorial’s comfort and peace within their own communities, fostering the healing process for many who have struggled to confront their memories.

The Wall That Heals exhibit was on the road for nearly 18,000 miles and visited 32 communities across the country during its 2023 season. The memorial was escorted by nearly 3,000 vehicles into those communities, spreading The Wall’s healing legacy to more than 222,000 visitors. Guided tours of the exhibit were provided to more than 21,000 visitors.

The Wall That Heals will be open 24 hours a day beginning May 30th, until closing Sunday, June 2nd at 2:00 pm. This event is free and open to all. The Wall That Heals will be escorted into Hartland, May 28th when assembly will begin before being open for viewing May 30 – June 2.

It is our sincere honor for our community to be chosen as a host site for The Wall That Heals. This visit allows us to share in the memorial’s profound legacy and honor those who served.
