The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that a black Tupelo tree was planted and an engraved 300-pound granite stone was dedicated to the memory of Neil Armstrong at the Cincinnati Observatory Center in Hyde Park, Ohio.

The engraving reads:

By reaching for the stars,
you might just land on the moon.
Dedicated to the memory of Neil Armstrong.
A True American Hero.
Present for the dedication were Andrew, Oksana, Kali, Wendy, Mark and Janet Armstrong, John Ruthven (a close family friend and artist), Debbie and Tori Lentz.
