Tampa Off The Beaten Path: 123 reviews and 192 photos
At the intersection of Memorial Highway and Kennedy Boulevard in west Tampa is a small monument that consists of a granite tower topped with an eagle. This is the city's World War I Memorial, which contains the names of 106 local veterans killed in action during World War I. This monument was the work of the Tampa Rotary Club.
The WW I monument was originally constructed in 1921 to mark the southern end of Memorial Highway, which ran from Tampa to the Pinellas County line. This 15.5 mile road was created to honor local veterans of World War I. The highway's southern terminus was originally at Howard Avenue, but it was later shortened to the present location at Bayshore Boulevard.
