This World War I memorial consists of a tapering, rusticated pink granite slab topped by a cradled, grey granite orb topped by a bronze eagle with outstretched wings.  On the front of the slab is a bronze plaque with a curved pediment, containing the names of local residents who served in the war.  The monument rests on a shallow-hipped, rusticated, grey granite base.
