A newly erected sign across from Veteran’s Park in Hawthorne welcomes visitors to Hawthorne in a big way. The sign says “Hawthorne – America’s Patriotic Home” and holds the Mineral County seal. It sits next to McDonald’s near the area of where the former community Christmas tree had once been planted. The sign was erected by the Nevada Department of Transportation. Organizations like the Lions Club and Mineral County Sportsman’s Club have a vision of landscaping and sculpture to decorate that area.
