Long Description:
This War memorial is a large set of 4 marble monuments. The original cenotaph was built after World War I in 1920. It is located at Monument Corners, at the intersection of Lindsay Road 5 and Cherry Hill Road, just off of Highway 6. The land surrounding the monument was donated by the McLay family, many of whom fought in the both wars.

The first monument and second monument on the right are dedicated to those who died in and since World War I.

The monument on the left, features exclusively World War II.
