Sculptor Charles Keck was hired to create a monument to those killed during World War I from Lynchburg. His bronze, The Listening Post (The Doughboy) statue, was installed in 1926 at the base of Monument Terrace, taking the place of the dolphin fountain. Inscribed in the wall behind the statue are local military unit designations and the names of 43 casualties.
