On November 11th, 2020, Bexley Mayor Ben Kessler met with members and trustees of the Bexley Historical Society at Broad and Drexel streets to unveil a commemorative plaque marking the history of Camp Bushnell in Bexley.
President of the Bexley Historical Society Glenn Soden noted that there was an incredible amount of collaboration that preceded the creation and placement of plaque including efforts from the City of Bexley, the Bexley Community Foundation, and the Bexley Public Library.

The plaque, through text and photos, honoring Camp Bushnell has been reviewed by Mayor Ben Kessler, City Council and the Tree Commission. The latter group gave approval to place the marker on the northwest quadrant of Drexel Circle. A formal dedication date has not been determined but is tentatively scheduled to be held in the Spring of 2020.
