This bronze plaque and obelisk once stood at the entrance to Old Town Bisbee, but was moved to this location. The date of the move is unknown. The significance of the obelisk is also unknown, but it appears to be topped with an old flag pole ball top and has a bronze American Legion emblem on the front. In the gallery photo of Police HQ, the monument can be seen to the right of the flag pole base, withe two posts and a chain in front of it.

The plaque reads:
