My great-grandfather was killed in this massacre. My great-grandmother escaped with my grandma and her siblings. I remember my family taking grandma to this memorial site back in the 1980's. It was very emotional visit back to her childhood...and left a forever memory for me.

It's only a couple miles off the highway and completely worth the stop. Much of the foundations are still visible as are a few buildings. The monument is full of information that will break your heart, teach you about labor history, and get you out...More

Feels like ghosts haunt this place. Great history about fighting for worker's rights. Shill appropriate today given the "right to work" movement. Bring your kids and teach some history to the WHOLE family.
