On Memorial Day 1921, Hopewell American Legion Post 80 dedicated the Commonwealth of Virginia's first tribute to those who made the supreme sacrifice during World War I. The monument now honors Hopewell's fallen heroes from succeeding wars and conflicts. The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 637 currently maintains the structure ensuring its survival for generations to come.
