This simple stone cairn, fashioned out of North Attleborough "red rock" sits in Municipal Park, near the front of the Town Hall. There is a bronze plaque that reads:
"In honor of the four hundred and fifty-six citizens of North Attleborough who devoted themselves to the cause of freedom and served their country in the World War."
There is no designation on the plaque stating which World War. At the time the cairn was built there had only been one. The names of all 456 North Attleborough veterans appear on the plaque.
There is a short pathway in the front of the cairn, made from the same rough red rock as the monument. A large flag pole stands at the rear of the memorial, with two small flags in the front.
