Monument to the people of the towns of Hamburg, Howell, and Toonerville.
St Charles County Missouri
This monument is dedicated to the several hundred familes whose exodus from Howell, Hamburg and Toonerville-y communities took place prior to the declaration of World War II, Dec 7, 1941.
The U.S. Government purchased approximately eighteen thousand acres for construction of a plant to manufacture TNT for World War II. Mandatory moving followed from homes, schools, churches, businesses and farms.
To past, present and future generations, we express a heartfelt wish, "peace."
