The Manchester World War I Memorial Plaque was made by the Gorham Manufacturing Company and dedicated on November 11, 1920. It is a bronze relief that bears the images of a soldier and sailor flanking a list of Manchester citizens who died in World War I. It is attached to a base of rough-hewn granite, specked with black and gray. It was originally located about 30 feet to the north of this spot; when the original hospital building was demolished in 1983, the plaque was moved here.
