This new park in Edgefield pays homage to all American veterans and especially those who have a connection to Edgefield County. It was created by American Legion Post 30, whose nickname, Hezzie Griffis, honors Hezzie Franklin Griffis, an Edgefield son who lost his life at age 23 in World War I. Edgefield Veterans’ Memorial Park is located across from the National Guard Armory on Highway 25.
