Jefferson Park WWI Memorial Plaque

Address: Near Fieldhouse at Jefferson Park

City: Chicago

County: Cook

Neighborhood: Jefferson Park

Monument Type:

Monument Setting:

Monument Materials: ,


During the 1930s a cannon was installed in the triangular lawn. This WWI cannon was dedicated to the soldiers of the Jefferson Park District. The cannon was removed in the early 1940s, when the military needed to reuse WWI cannons for scrap metal for the war effort during WWII. Today, only a very small bronze plaque remains. Located near the entryway of the field house, this WWI memorial plaque was dedicated by the Altrui Club. Composed of bronze, the helmet shaped is mounted directly into the sidewalk in front of the field house. It is uncertain as to whether this remains in its original location or if it was first installed near the cannon. (This plaque may have marked a second WWI memorial, such as a tree that may not have survived).

Commissioned by: Altrui Club
