Bowling Green, KY 42103
The Confederate Monument of Bowling Green is one of the 61 Civil War monuments in Kentucky that has been added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. Located in the older section of the Fairview Cemetery, the white limestone obelisk was built in 1875 and is towers at 30 feet (9.14 meters). Adorned with an etched Confederate flag and various reliefs on its sides, the statue was erected due to George B. Payne's efforts. Encircling the monument are the many graves of the fallen soldiers, some of whom are unnamed.
