WWI Honor Roll - Dunellen

WWI Honor Roll - Dunellenzoom
Washington Memmorial Park, N. Washington Avenue

The Dunellen Honor Roll consists of an upright, horizontal, quarry-faced granite slab with a large, inset rectangular bronze plaque framed in rope molding affixed to the front.  The memorial is dedicated to Dunellen residents who served in World War I.  Their names are listed alphabetically in five columns. 

The memorial was dedicated in front of 2,000 people, following a parade to the site.  It was unveiled by two Dunellen boy scouts.  A roll call of the Honor Roll's names was read. 

This memorial is located among several monuments facing N. Washington Avenue which commemorate Dunellen’s residents’ participation in 20th century conflicts.
