This monument demarcates a nature preserve that was given to the town of Falmouth, Maine, by George Woodward in 1924. It is to be preserved forever as a park and forest (in honor of the two men who died in WWI). It is 27 acres of mature forest, with marked trails.
The monument is a smooth granite rectangular base with a curved top, set on top of a granite platform, and surrounded by a stone courtyard with stone walls, stone pavers, and stone benches. Various plantings adorn the courtyard, which is reached by climbing two small sets of wide stone stairs.
