WWI Memorial, Lincoln Square

RDLA is privileged to be designing the preservation of Worcester’s 1930’s WWI Memorial in Lincoln Square!

Boston has many veterans’ memorials around the city to honor those who have died in conflicts from the Boston Massacre to the wars Iraq and Afghanistan. Perhaps the most comprehensive of these tributes is the Veterans Memorial Park, which is part of the Emerald Necklace in the Back Bay Fens.

Veterans Memorial Park, which commemorates servicemen and women in World War I, the Vietnam War, and the Korean War, can be found near the Kelleher Rose Garden. The memorial comprises three different monuments arranged in a circle. The money to build Veterans Memorial Park came from the George Robert White Fund.

RDLA will be working with the City of Boston to restore the three memorials, which include elements like granite walls and bronze plaques, bronze sculptures, and specialty paving.
