Memorial Lane is dedicated to forever remembering and honoring ALL those who served as Firefighters, in Law Enforcement, or in the Military. We honor those who have served in the past, the present and in the future. Within each site is a special place of honor for those Fallen Heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. We encourage all to visit, reflect and with great respect to join those who pay HOMAGE TO OUR HEROES.

ABOUT

     Friends of Memorial Lane is a citizen’s committee that is an outgrowth response from the members of the Memorial Lane Committee  which  was formed with approval of the Granbury City Council. This committee was to oversee the design, fundraising, and completion of the new Memorial Lane.

     Memorial Lane is located at the Jim Burks Firefighters Memorial Park at 561 N. Travis, Granbury, Texas. The 3 sites now include the existing Firefighters’ section with the addition of two new sites; one honoring and remembering all Law Enforcement and also the same for one to include all military.

     The goal of Friends of Memorial Lane is to support, expand (when and if needed), hold appropriate events for heroes, and to work to always maintain the integrity and beauty of Memorial Lane.
