Veterans Monument - Allendale


The Allendale memorial consists of a bronze eagle with outstretched wings perched on a sphere atop a tall granite shaft. The shaft has  commemorative plaques on the front, and incised decorations including a US star near the top & a wreath near the bottom.

The plaque is inscribed with the names of residents of Allendale who died in World War I.  Subsequent plaques memorialize those killed in World War II & the Vietnam War.
