Annie Oakley statue. Annie Oakley Memorial Plaza

We found the Annie Oakley Memorial Plaza after some frustration of following the directions of other reviews [RA: now updated]. It is a very nicely done memorial with statue and plaques explaining Annie's significance.

If driving through, it's a quick stop.

A statue and memorial plaza are dedicated to Annie Oakley, the woman dubbed "Little Sure Shot" by Sitting Bull. She toured with Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show and Congress of Rough Riders at the turn of the 20th Century.

Oakley was born out in rural Ohio northwest of Brock, OH, but Greenville has adopted her as a daughter and erected a larger-than-life bronze statue of the sharp-shooter and placed a tranquil little plaza around it.

Oakley's actual birthplace is pretty much in nowheresville. Her grave is in a small, almost-forgotten little cemetery in the incorporated area northwest of Greenville, called Brock. There is no town center for Brock and you are warned to keep your eyes peeled for a small sign pointing to the cemetery if you should decide to venture there.
