Falls of Our Fallen Saint Cloud Minnesota

The Falls of Our FallenThe Falls of Our Fallen is a massive waterfall sitting along side of Hwy 10 close to the over pass of Hwy 23 on the east side of Saint Cloud MN. Many people drive by it everyday and do not even notice it as (thankfully) they are watching the traffic around them. However lately with the construction on the Highway I have heard more people talking about the huge waterfall and wondering what it is for, as it just seems to be sitting there between businesses along the highway.

The 2 1/2 story waterfall is named Falls of Our Fallen and it was built by American Heritage National Bank to honor the heritage of the community and its people. It is a memorial built to honor our veterans, law enforcement officers, and firefighters who gave their life for their community and their country.

American Heritage National Bank Falls of Our FallenDesigned and develpoed by Rodger Johnston, the CEO of American Heritage National Bank, the Falls of Our Fallen is built from 220 Tons of granite that are supported with reinforced concrete. The amazing structure honoring our fallen heros circulates up to 1,000 gallons of water per minute. The water is stored in an underground tank and holding pond with a capacity of 15,000 gallons. The Falls of Our Fallen has 2 waterfalls one faces north and one faces south.

Beautiful symbolism was built into the design with the addition of bronze eagles perched above the falls. At the center of the falls is a silver eagle with one of our fallen cradled in its wings. It is a stunning tribute to the men and women it was built to memorialize, our heroes, who have helped make the United States of America the greatest country in the world.

Steve I don't remember this. When was it constructed.  Very good idea!

Hi Anna, It was dedicated 2000, so it would have been built after you left the area. It is really a very nice tribute.
