The Berlin monument consists of a group of World War I monuments angled around the edge of a tree-shaded plot in the center of Berlin. The monuments themselves are placed in a mulched area planted with perennial flowering plants and a small concrete plaza is located in front of the monuments.
The World War I monument may be a replacement for an original monument. It consists of a arched top, vertical granite slab, smooth-faced on the front, and quarry-faced on the edges which sits on a horizontal, rectangular, granite slab with quarry faced edges. The bronze plaque is divided into two sections. The framed lower section consists of an honor roll of Berlin residents who served in World War I listed in two columns. The upper section, slightly wider than the lower contains the commemoration text and is ornamented with cross cannons with an “e pluribus unum” scroll topped by a flying eagle and five furled flags, with the American flag in the center.
