Towamba Public School First World War Memorial Trees

Description

Memorial grove of elm trees planted in 2006 within the school grounds to replace the original Cypress Pines from 1928. A bronze dedication plaque is mounted on a granite boulder nearby. The memorial is clearly visible from the street. 

Inscription

In 1928 a row of Cypress Pines was planted on this site. It was in memory of those from the Towamba district who lost their lives in the First World War and also commemorated the tenth anniversary of the end of the war. These elms were planted in 2006 to replace the original pines which stood proudly here for over seven decades.
