This little-known World War I Memorial, located on the northeast side of the intersection of Soquel Drive and Freedom Blvd, was dedicated on Christmas 1923 by the Daughters of the American Revolution to the fallen men and women of Santa Cruz County of that war. The plaque reads:

IN MEMORY OF
THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF
SANTA CRUZ COUNTY
WHO PERISHED IN THE
1914 WORLD WAR 1918

ERECTED BY THE
SANTA CRUZ CHAPTER
D.A.R.
CHRISTMAS 1929

In 2018, on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, the Cabrillo Host Lions Club volunteered to clean up the memorial (see pictures gallery) and has been meeting to conduct regular maintenance in the years since.
