In 1941, County Judge Pleas Sanders, a highly decorated WWI veteran, established a photo gallery of service men and women in the entry hall of the courthouse. Members of the community would gather at the courthouse to pay homage to their loved ones, share correspondence or any news about the war, and have prayer for their safe keeping and return from war.

On August 31, 2013, a formal dedication ceremony declared the hallway the VETERANS HALL OF HONOR.

The Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary, under the direction of Commander Maurita Miller and Adjutant Perneila (Penny) Saltsman, elevated the honor of these men and women by adding more display cases and organizing photos according to war era, as well as adding authentic memorabilia.
