A Recently Added Memorial
Wesley Bolin Plaza is a park area that sits in front of the Arizona State Capitol. It's named for Arizona's 15th Governor who served from 1977 to 1978.
Recently when I was walking around the area, I spotted a new memorial (2015) that I hadn't seen before. This archway is dedicated to Ernest W. McFarland, Arizona's 10th Governor who also served as a U. S. Senator from Arizona as well as Chief Justice of the Arizona Supreme Court.
MacFarland was a man of many achievements, not least of which was to secure the interests of the Central Arizona Project protecting Arizona's rights to water in the Colorado River.
It's a beautiful memorial to one of Arizona's accomplished men.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today. Stop by and see Arizona's oldest hotel.
