The Elk On The Trail is a World War I memorial to Massachusetts Elks who died in World War I.

A 8' high bronze statue of an elk stands on a 3' high rough cut granite base behind a 4' high fenced in area. The elk holds his head high and has a full rack of antlers. The elk was cast at the Gorham Manufacturing Company of Providence, RI. Sculpted by Eli Harvey, the memorial was dedicated on June 17, 1923.
