Historic Sites, Monuments, Landmarks, and Public Art ()


This is a part of the "Cabell County World War I Memorial Boulevard" trail. For links to the other entries and trail information, see the links below. This entry corresponds with signs 14,12,10 and 8 on the north, or railroad, side of the trail.

The 91 trees lining Memorial Boulevard were planted in the 1920s to honor the 91 soldiers from Cabell County who died while in the service of their country during World War I. There are fifteen signs placed along this trail that include information about each of the 91 soldiers. In addition to the digital markers in Clio that guide you along the path of these trees, that are eight physical signs on the south side of Memorial Boulevard and seven physical signs on the north side of the street. Users can review these physical signs as they walk, and/or they can use this entry and four other Clio entries to guide their path. More complete information is available on a separate website (see links below). This trail runs from 7th St. West to 13th St. West along both sides of Memorial Boulevard and is a 1.4-mile loop. The Clio pages are ordered to start at the 7th Street end and follow the south (park) side west and towards Harvey Road. After that, the Clio entries guide the user back and provide information about each tree planted on the north (railroad) side of the street.
