World Wars Memorial

World War I and II Memorial

The two world wars are represented by the Roman Numerals I & II.

The World’s wars. A city’s town square.

After nearly 5 Years of planning and fundraising, this solid work of art came to fruition before Memorial Day 2007. The two world wars are represented by the Roman Numerals I & II. Over 800 names of Peoria County Veterans who lost their lives in the line of duty are engraved on the front and back of this 73 ton tribute.
