Commemorates those who served in World War One.

After World War One, the town decided to include all local men who served on one board and that it would be kept in the Presbyterian Church. This board was to be multi-denominational, therefore including Catholics on the board. But one Catholic refused to have his name included with the other faiths and made very serious threats against people and threatened to destroy the board and burn down the church. So to keep the peace the Catholics were not included on the roll and are not included on any roll in the district.
