A memorial bronze plaque and 10-ton boulder dedicated Maplewood Memorial Park "to the men and women who served their country during World War I." The formal dedication occurred on Memorial Day 1931, when the park first opened.
Originally, eight American Elm trees were planted to commemorate fallen solders from Maplewood. A small plaque near the amphitheater still marks the location.
