In Memory of Our Deceased World War Veterans
The Monument of the Wolrd War I soldier is described on the Basin Springs Plaque displayed along the path of the ridge above the band shell -- reads this statement: "Following World War I, the “Doughboy” statue was placed as a memorial to local men who served their country."
Any further information on the role of Basin Park as a venue for Patriotism is welcome.
The American Legion was contacted as a source, but they have no information on the Doughboy.
The Spanish American War of 1898 caused the State Guard to assemble in Eureka for a photo shot at the Basin Park. Local, -- Walker at right.
