WWI Monument - Elizabethzoom
Winfield Scott Park

This monument consists of a vertical granite slab with corner shoulders & a top gable resting on a stone slab base.  Mounted to the front of the slab is a bronze plaque with raised frame and a central arch along the top. This arch allows the placement of the Elizabeth City seal at the top.  The plaque contains an honor roll commemorating residents of Elizabeth who served in WWI.

The Elizabeth monument is one of many commemorative monuments placed in the city's Winfield Scott Plaza, a two-block-long park in front of City Hall.
