It’s a giant head monument for veterans. It’s quite eye catching from the road. Drove up to see it close -it’s okay. The floor blocks with veterans names on is a nice touch. The area is very much milking it’s links to Eisenhower.

We were heading to the Frontier Village and stumbled upon this. Pretty big to just stumble upon. Hahaha. The red bricks surrounding his head have the names and service of the veterans on them. Such a nice way to honor our veterans.

This 16-foot concrete bust of President Eisenhower is worth a little time for the strangeness of its paltry setting. We were there on Memorial Day, a fitting time to think of the accomplishments of this leader in the military and political realms.

This huge bust of Eisenhower is well done, and stirs patriotic feelings for this Denison born president. It is located right next to the Frontier Village and is a quick stop if you are in the area.

We were here as a group for a family reunion. This is a beautiful memorial to Pres. Eisenhower---the whole area is very nice. We also rode around the park area and enjoyed the Frontier village. Very informative also.

What a cool big giant head statue, but that's about all it is. Not much else to see/do, but it's pretty impressive, and you can see the bust from the highway. You can't miss it! It's a veterans memorial, but it seemed more like an...More
