The sign with new updates
Have you driven by the Annie Oakley Memorial Park recently? The space at the corner of Martin St. and Broadway in Greenville was recently improved. Originally established in 1990 by the Annie Oakley Memorial Park Committee, renovations were accomplished this past summer.

The sign prior to changes
After approval by the Greenville Park Board, the Annie Oakley Center Foundation worked in cooperation with the City of Greenville, Main Street Greenville and the Darke County Visitors Bureau on the improvements. The City waxed the statue and improved the existing lighting which surrounds the statue. Thanks to the efforts of City employees Ryan Delk with support from Chad Henry and Curt Garrison, Annie’s statue shines at night.

The main informational sign which had been located next to Martin Street was moved. It is now more visible having been placed behind the statue. The Annie Oakley Center Foundation provided the funds and created the design with Dusty Nealeigh for improving the main information sign. Portions of the original sign were maintained for a new location within the park. The Darke County Visitors Bureau funded the changes on the reverse side of the main sign.

The Annie Oakley Center Foundation’s mission is to work for the accurate memory of Annie Oakley and support The National Annie Oakley Center at Garst Museum. For more information, see the Center’s website, www.annieoakleycenterfoundation.com
