The Allendale memorial consists of a bronze eagle with outstretched wings perched on a sphere atop a tall granite shaft. The shaft has commemorative plaques on the front, and incised decorations including a US star near the top & a wreath near the bottom.
The plaque is inscribed with the names of residents of Allendale who died in World War I. Subsequent plaques memorialize those killed in World War II & the Vietnam War.
