Between 1923 and 1930 Harvey W. Seeds American Legion Post 29 erected a World War memorial at Woodlawn Park Cemetery. It depicts a sailor, soldier, marine and an Army nurse. The sculptor was Robert Paul Goldie. He used local military personnel as models. Unfortunately the monument has been a frequent target by vandals. In 2010 Felix Sosa-Camejo American Legion Post 346 completed a major restoration, stripping off decades of paint and replacing missing limbs. These pictures were taken on September 1, 2013, still looking great.
