More about this monument. This monument, located along State Street in Curwensville, depicts the Doughboy of World War I. Dedicated on Flag Day, June 14, 1925, to veterans of all wars, it was erected by the Curwensville American Legion Auxiliary at a cost of $3,750. The bronze plaque at the base of the monument contains 203 names.
In 1988, the sculpture was corn cob blasted and the figure's helmet strap was replaced. The sculpture was rededicated on Memorial Day, May 3, 1988.
The model from which the casting for the statue was made, was the handicraft of Walter A. Sinz, a sculptor from Cleveland, Ohio. The model was made from a living figure and it is an exact reproduction of a World War I soldier.
