This World War I monument is constructed of concrete and placed in a square garden bordered by colored concrete edge blocks. The lower portion of the monument, sheathed in stucco, consists of three stages, each square in cross-section descending in size as they rise.  The lower section, the base, is undecorated on each of its four faces.  The second and third stages contain bronze plaques honoring those from the township who fought in World War I.  The top stage is crowned by a stuccoed obelisk.  A small metal eagle sculpture rises from the top of the obelisk.
