Veterans Plaza, 415 Harrison Avenue

The Harrison WWI monument is an elaborate composition. Set on a low plinth, square in cross-section, its base level consists of a square stone box with bronze memorial plaques mounted to each side.  Paired Doric columns rise from this base to a single entablature that features a projecting square clock face with ticks in lieu of numbers. The entablature is crowned by a stone orb. Perched atop the orb is a metal eagle with its wings spread.
