Information

Title

Far Hills World War I Memorial (NJ)

Description

A bronze plaque affixed to a rough boulder honors 33 Far Hills citizens who served in World War I. The plaque features an eagle at top flanked by reliefs of battle scenes (including one that appears to show a wounded soldier falling backward). Unusually, the border of the plaque at the sides comprises upright rifles with bayonets.

The plaque is not dated but was likely erected in the early 1920s. Rust is visible on the eagle. Plaques honoring later wars have been added on the opposite side of the boulder.
