Lithopolis Community

The Wagnalls Memorial happily partners with our community for special events on Memorial Day, the Lithopolis Honeyfest, and Simply Christmas. Our mission is to foster a thriving, unified community.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day has been a special day in Lithopolis for nearly a century! The Wagnalls Memorial was dedicated on Memorial Day, 1925. For more than seven decades before events in 2020, the Bloom Township Firefighters Association hosted an all-you-can-eat fish fry and car show adding to the Walker-Hecox-Hickle American Legion Post 677's parade and memorial service at the Lithopolis Cemetery. Today, the fish fry has become a food truck festival and live music and other fun activities have been added to a great day!
