I’d driven past a construction site on the north side of Quincy several times over the last few months, and I kept wondering what they were building. I could tell the site wasn’t very large, but it was right on the corner of Knapheide’s property. As the site progressed, it was plain that it would be a series of flagpoles. I asked around, and no one I talked to knew what it was going to be.
Well, it’s finished, the mystery is over. The Knapheide family had this monument built on their property as a statement of their God and country. I’ll try to get some pictures soon so you see the monument, in case you aren’t from the area.
