This elaborate memorial rests on a slightly curved stone base with four Corinthian columns supporting an ornate, slightly curved roof.  Between the columns stands a stone pedestal with a bronze plaque on the front, topped by an eagle with its wings outspread. 

This memorial, commemorating those who served in World War I, was designed by J&R Lamb Company of New York, and erected by Ellsworth Matthews of Lakewood, NJ.  The local War Memorial Committee raised $8,000 through benefit dances and personal contributions over a two-year period. 

This monument replaced a temporary wooden one that was located at the intersection of Second Street & Clifton Avenue.
