Lewis County Memorial Park is located in the heart of downtown Hohenwald and was built in the 1940s by employees of the General Shoe Company, later known as Genesco. The former Genesco building, currently known as the War Memorial Building, has been repurposed and is home to a local business, governmental agencies such as the American Jobs Center, the Lewis County Health Department, the Department of Human Service and Children’s Services, Davis House Child Advocacy Center and the Hohenwald/Lewis County Chamber of Commerce.
Lewis County Memorial Park is jointly funded by Lewis County and the City of Hohenwald.
Lewis County Memorial Park is the location of the South Central Area Fair each summer and spring time finds baseball and softball fields busy with local and visiting teams. Two tennis courts are located within the park as well as picnic pavilions, children’s playgrounds, a Boy Scouts of America meeting place and a meeting space for Girl Scouts USA. A mile long walking track is found along the interior boundary and a swimming pool is open during summer months.
