CENTER, TX (KTRE) - Shelby County has one of the oldest and most unique courthouses in the state, but the grounds were missing one thing, a memorial for war veterans. After today that's no longer the case. A granite marker now sets in front of the Irish castle style building. Community members and the five military branches commemorated the memorial. Mothers and wives of the three Shelby County soldiers who were killed in the current conflict were present. So were some of the 1800 war veterans who live in Shelby County.
