The Sculptor

Henry Augustus Lukeman (1871-1935) was an American sculptor, specializing in historical monuments. He was born in Richmond, VA, and studied under Daniel Chester French in New York, and at the Beaux-Arts in Paris. His works include Stone Mountain in Georgia, and locally, the McKinley statue in Adams, Martin.
The Park and Monument

In 1923, the City of Pittsfield established this site as Memorial Park and commissioned the construction of a war memorial. On July 8, 1926 this Soldiers' ans Sailors' Memorial was dedicated as the Peace Memorial in tribute to Pittsfield's sons and daughters who served in World War I. On May 31, 2010 this memorial was rededicated following extensive restoration. It continues to stand as a symbolic shrine for all Veterans who have served so gallantly defending their country in the past, present and future.

I Saw The Marker

There's a Christmas tree lit up in front of the monument... very pretty. Was driving by so could not take a photo but will try to do so.

I Saw The Marker

The city has been keeping the site pretty maintained, but there is some debris and damage.
