Description:

The Liberty Memorial is the largest and only memorial in the United States dedicated to those who served in WWI. Its museum is the only one whose sole theme is that war. The Memorial was opened in 1926 with the fountains being completed in the 1930's.. The facility was renovated at a cost of $45 million and reopened to the public in 2002. The fountain is on the north side of the Memorial and sits below the Frieze. See "Frieze at the Liberty Memorial" in the Sculpture gallery of this website.
