Memorial Arch

The Memorial Arch was built in 1924 to honor the brave soldiers from Cabell County, WV who were killed in action in the 1st. World War.

Also in November of 2000 a Time Capsule was buried only to be open on November 11, 2050 (Veterans Day).

Along with the arch there were trees planted along Memorial Boulevard extending from Fifth Street West to Thirteenth Street West.

They were planted along the North and South side of the Boulevard.  Each tree stands for one of the soldiers that was killed in action.

Trees bearing odd numbers are planted on the South side and trees bearing the even numbers are planted on the North side of the Boulevard.

The name following the number is the name of the solider to whom the tree is dedicated.
