In 1930, the home became part of the Veterans Administration and, in 1973, the cemetery was one of 21 cemeteries transferred to what was then known as the National Cemetery System.\nHot Springs National Cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.\nMonuments and Memorials\nThe Battle Mountain Monument is a 32-foot tall obelisk tower situated on the cemetery’s highest point.
