Albany Historical Society: Short Talk About the Albany Freedom Shrine

Albany Historical Society: Short Talk About the Albany Freedom Shrine

A brief presentation by Albany Mayor Rochelle Nason

Have you ever passed the statue of a torch in the middle of the Key Route median at Solano, and wondered “what is that thing anyway?”

You may have answered yourself, “it must be some kind of war memorial.”

In fact it is not a war memorial, although it was created during the Korean War and it stands in front of Albany’s World War II memorial.

Curious? Come hear about the forgotten history of this prominent Albany landmark.

All are welcome to attend the Historical Society’s annual meeting before the talk at 1:30 p.m.
