World War I Monument - Jenkintown

100 Cities / 100 Memorials

100c 100m wwi centennial plaque This monument was erected in November of 1919 to celebrate the return of the men and women who served during WWI. The monument previously stood in front of the old Borough Hall location at the corner of West Avenue and Leedom Street. The original monument was a concrete pedestal with mounted mortar shells, and a bronze tablet of all the names of those who served. When Borough Hall was relocated to its current location at 700 Summit Avenue, the pedestal of the original monument was incapable of being moved and unfortunately was unable to be preserved. The bronze tablet was, however, placed on a large piece of granite instead, which is how the monument sits today. In honor of the 100th anniversary of WWI, the bronze plaque was refinished and the memorial was cleaned. This work was completed in time for Memorial Day 2018 celebrations.

Brown County World War I Memorial

100 Cities / 100 Memorials

100c 100m wwi centennial plaque The Brown County World War I Memorial, honoring those who served, fought, and died in World War I, was placed at Brownwood High School in 1921 with funds raised by the Brownwood HS Class of 1921.  This was a sacred memorial to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in World War I, the Great War, the War to End All Wars. In 2016, the memorial was restored and moved to a new site in the 36th Division Memorial Park. The restored memorial included the old World War I Memorial along with a new granite tablet with the names of the 39 Brown County veterans who died in World War I, a new plaque with the wording from the old World War I Memorial that had become difficult to read, and another new plaque telling about the original World War I Memorial.  The profound words on the original World War I Memorial were these:                                                                               

To those men from Brown County
Who rendered valiant service in the world war;
Who feared not;
Who believed in the sacred principles
Upon which this republic is founded;
Who preferred death to slavery;
Who signified a willingness to give their lives
And to perpetuate democracy;
This monument is reverently dedicated.
