This little-known World War I Memorial, located on the northeast side of the intersection of Soquel Drive and Freedom Blvd, was dedicated on Christmas 1923 by the Daughters of the American Revolution to the fallen men and women of Santa Cruz County of that war. The plaque reads:

In 2018, on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, the Cabrillo Host Lions Club volunteered to clean up the memorial (see pictures gallery) and has been meeting to conduct regular maintenance in the years since.

Memorial Stadium was built in 1923 to honor University of Illinois men and women who gave their lives serving in World War I. There are a total of 200 columns on the east and west sides of the stadium. 183 columns display one name of a University of Illinois student that lost their lives in the first war (182 men and 1 woman).  In addition, carved stone panels were placed on the facility's exterior to commemorate the war and to honor athletic achievements.  In 2002, the stadium dedication was extended to those who died in World War II. The stadium was officially dedicated on October 18, 1924, on which the university football team played a homecoming game against the University of Michigan. On way to a 39–14 Illini victory, Red Grange scored five touchdowns in one of the greatest single-game performances in football history.

Aurora’s New York Street Bridge, constructed in 1931 and spanning the Fox River, is dedicated as a tribute to the brave soldiers who fought in World War I. The bridge features six ornamental elements - four hooded “Memory” sculptures, a statue celebrating “Victory,” and the Branches of Service Plaque, a large bronze relief representing the three branches of the armed services at the time of WWI. At the center of the bridge there are two outlooks with bronze and limestone memorials. On the north side stands a 12-foot bronze statue of the Messenger Goddess Victory on top of a 10-foot limestone base. The bridge was recently restored, with a grant from Landmarks Illinois, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the United States' entry into World War 1.
