Soldiers Memorial was dedicated by then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1936. It was opened to the public on Memorial Day in 1938. The idea was first conceived in 1923 by relatives of those who fought in ‘The Great War’ (or as known today as World War I). Many architectural features (some hidden) are found inside and outside the memorial along the walls, stairs and ceiling. The building consists of two museums, on the left and right sides (both free to the public during regular hours).
