This monument appears to be a recent replacement for an original memorial.  It is composed of a smooth-faced granite slab & base.  The slab has lower corner scroll decoration & a curved top.  Mounted to the front is an elaborate bronze panel topped with central shield and numerous other military symbols.  The plaque honors West Orange residents who served in WWI.
