The Welland-Crowland War Memorial is the last large World War I memorial to be erected in Canada.
At the height of the Depression, the people of Welland and Crowland raised over $36,000 to construct this monument.
This war memorial was created by artist Elizabeth Wyn Wood, winner of a Canada wide competition for the project. It was unveiled one day after the start of the Second World War on September 4, 1939.
