This stone obelisk monument stands on three base slabs, square in cross-section, progressively smaller as they rise.  A stone cube sits atop this base with bronze plaques on each side commemorating Riverside residents who served in World War I. The obelisk rests on the stone cube, and is crowned by a bronze eagle with wings outstretched.
