WWI Memorial - Tuckerton

WWI Memorial - Tuckertonzoom
Greenwood Cemetery, 501 N. Green Street

This memorial consists of a bronze honor roll mounted on a rusticated granite pillar listing the men who served from Tuckerton, NJ in World War I.   

It was created by the diligent efforts of the King's Daughters with the support of the  "Tuckerton Beacon" newspaper, which proudly detailed all the individuals who had subscribed to the $500 memorial fund. 

The monument was relocated to Greenwood Cemetery in 1925 after rising waters had undermined its foundation in its original location on Route 9 at Lake Pohatcong.
