Wallingford World War I Monument

I yearly contribute to the Honor Roll Project of  Heather Wilkinson Rojo – the purpose is to photograph and transcribe Veteran names for family research. Heather’s Blog can be found at http://nutfieldgenealogy.blogspot.com/

If you would like to contribute, information can be found there as to “how” to send your photos and transcriptions in.

Wallingford World War I Monument

  • Location: Town Hall
    45 S Main St
    Wallingford, CT 06492


This World War I Monument has two very distinctive features, one being a large sculpted bronze panel with five marching soldiers and sailors carrying flags. The second feature is a bronze eagle with its wings raised high in flight. Eagles also are in flight above the other two memorial monuments.


1941 – Honor Roll World War II – 1945


Right panel monument – 1917 – Honor Roll World War – 1918


Left Panel Monument: 1950 – The Korean War – 1953

This memorial was dedicated in 2006. It has a three-panel granite base with a bronze plaque on each panel displaying the names of over 500 names of Wallingford, CT. residents that fought in the Great War. The names marked by an asterisk sadly means they gave their life for their country.

The center panel is quite impressive and reads:

Dedicated in Honor and
In Memory of Those Men And
Women from Wallingford Who
Served in the World War.
1917 – 1918

Above the inscription is a stunning sculpted panel of the five marching servicemen carrying flags – it’s quite impressive.


In the future, I plan on transcribing these names. So until that time, I will also post the panels in close-up for you to download and search.
