Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial will reopen Saturday, May 18, at 10 am to celebrate its 104th year in operation. The 352-foot tall structure is the world’s largest Doric column and is made of pink granite from Milford, MA. The column has a wood base structure with an outer concrete core. Park Rangers in 1812 period military uniforms will fire a musket salute after the morning flag raising ceremony.

The 25-acre Park, Memorial Column and Visitor Center is open from 10 am to 6 pm daily through September 8. Hours are 10 am to 5 pm September 9 through September 30, and weekends in October (Friday through Monday) until October 21.
