WWI Monument - Rumson

WWI Monument - Rumsonloupe
Victory Park, Lafayette Street & Koff River Road

This World War I monument consists of a gray granite stele whose upper edge is slightly arched, featuring a bas-relief eagle at the top.  The eagle is depicted perched on a laurel branch with outstretched wings.  The stele appears to date to the period following the Great War.  It rests on a sandstone slab. 

Beneath the eagle, a large, contemporary bronze plaque is affixed to the front.  The plaque contains an honor roll of the seven Rumson residents who died in WWI, followed by lists of the local residents who served.  The plaque was created in 1989.
