MEMORIAL TO OUR WORLD WAR DEAD
APRIL - 1926
Sponsored by the Jolly Workers Club

This memorial was erected a block east of the current location in 1928 by the Jolly Workers Club, to honor those citizens of Cherokee County who died in service during World War I.  In 1990, a tornado knocked the statue over, and it was repaired and moved to this location to be part of a memorial to honor all war dead. Flanking the statue are two black marble tablets engraved with the names of Jacksonville residents killed in action in World War I, World War II, and the Korean and Vietnam.  Wars.
