Location:  Simcoe County   N 44 04.818  W 079 47.221
At the corner of Prospect Street and 2nd Street, across the road from the fairgrounds.

The Beeton cenotaph was commissioned in September of 2002, spearheaded by local council and Branch 421 of the Legion.  This memorial sits across the road from the old gates of the fairgrounds, which was the original memorial in Beeton.
The new cenotaph is a brick wall, featuring black stone plaques, inscribed with the names of those who gave their lives the two World Wars, and to honour those who served in Korea and in Peacekeeping missions.  A sign dedicated to those who donated and were responsible for the cenotaph, appears beside the memorial.
