Sited at East & West Gateways to Downtown Area
Read the full press release.
Last week, the City formally unveiled three newly-restored monuments, located at the eastern and western intersections of Main Street and Huguenot Street — the gateways to our downtown. The three monuments are: the World War I Memorial, the Soldier’s Monument, and the Moulton Memorial, originally dedicated in 1921, 1895, and 1914 respectively. These and other monuments commemorate the great sacrifices made by generations of New Rochelleans to advance the cause of freedom throughout the world and are also wonderful examples of artistry that lend grace and beauty to their surroundings. Over the course of decades, they had deteriorated considerably. The restoration and preservation work was achieved through a collaboration of local historical experts, City staff, and professional conservators.
