The National Memorial for the Unborn is dedicated to healing generations of pain associated with the loss of aborted and miscarried children. No longer must these children remain nameless and forgotten, but are honoured through the Memorial’s “Wall of Names” and “Remembrance Garden” allowing mothers, fathers and other family members to begin the healing process.
The 50-foot granite "Wall of Names" holds small brass plates with words of remembrance from individuals and families all over the country seeking post-abortion healing. By honouring their child, countless individuals and families have found freedom from guilt and shame and moved toward forgiveness and restoration.
Our Remembrance Garden is a peaceful sanctuary for mothers, fathers, and other family members to honor their miscarried child. Engraved, brick pavers placed along the garden paths share their personal stories and provide encouragement to others seeking peace and solace there.
The Memorial also includes the original painting "I Will Hold You In Heaven," historical markers, and the Pool of Tears, which is dedicated to the memory of children lost to miscarriage.
Our grounds are open 24/7/365 however, our office hours vary weekly.

Visits and Group Tours:
Although the Memorial is open 24 hours/7days a week, we ask that you contact the office at (423) 899-1677 and let us know you will be visiting. We have to arrange for lights, heat and air to be turned on. Also, please coordinate your visit with staff if you will be with a group larger than 5 persons.
Follow the signs for Memorial parking and please park in the side lot and not the lot in front of the building that faces Vance Road. If the Memorial lot is full, please park in the lot across the street. There are several businesses that have their offices in the building adjacent to the Memorial and they need the parking for their clients, even on the weekends.
We ask that you maintain a somber and quiet atmosphere during your visit to the Memorial.
One common need of families of aborted children is for a unique place of healing...a place where loss and grief can be shared with others who have suffered similarly, a place where the unborn can be honored and remembered in a tangible way, and a place of closure. Now there is such a place.
Abortion can be one of the most traumatic experiences in a person's life.
You may feel hopeless and helpless, but you are not alone!
Counseling services are available to help bring healing and restoration.
