Discover the history behind Decoration Day by joining the West Des Moines Historical Society and Parks and Recreation Department at the Historic Jordan House and Jordan Cemetery. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, grab a free ice cream treat, and sit back to enjoy the Civil War era tunes played by the West Des Moines Community Band. While there grab an educational brochure, complete with a map, that will guide you to the gravesites of notable WDM citizens in Jordan Cemetery. This event will be a great way to teach children and adults alike the true purpose of Memorial Day!
