Jacobus in York County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Road of Remembrance Veterans Memorial
The War Mothers Club planted 400 sycamore trees along this roadway in the early 1920s to honor WWI veterans.
In 2018/19 the Rotary Clubs of York, Southern York County and Red Lion-Dallastown worked with many local volunteers, organizations, and businesses, to restore the lost trees with sycamores, maples, and oaks. A Ceremony was held in November 2019, to re-dedicate this historic landscape architecture to all who served in the armed forces.
Erected by Rotary International.
