JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri transportation department plans to donate a park and war monuments to Jefferson City.

The city’s Historic Preservation Commission learned Tuesday that the state will donate Blue Star Memorial Park and a Spanish-American War Memorial to the city, after the state surveys the property.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports the roadside park between the U.S. 50 Expressway and Missouri Boulevard was built in the early 1950s.

The life-sized statue memorializes more than 10,000 Missourians who served in the 1898 Spanish-American and Philippine-American wars and the U.S. involvement in the Boxer Rebellion. It was donated in 1967 by the Sons of Spanish-American War Veterans Association.
