Information

Title

Passaic Township World War I Memorial (NJ)

Description

A bronze plaque affixed to an arched, rough-hewn boulder, the memorial is dedicated to 63 Passaic Township residents who served in World War I, including one who died in service (Abraham Engle, denoted by a star next to his name). The plaque is topped by a relief of an eagle and the inscription, unusually, is done in a Medieval-style font. The border of the plaque is decorated with laurel leaves.

The memorial sits squarely in front of the Central School building (now Central Middle School) in Stirling, Long Hill Township, New Jersey. The date of its dedication is unknown but is likely c. 1920.

Passaic Township changed its name to Long Hill Township in 1992, largely to avoid confusion with the city of Passaic.
