Sign for Lexington war memorial on Missouri River bluff

This sign describes the Lafayette County War Memorial. It's on Highland Avenue, a Lexington city street that runs at the top of the river bluff overlooking the south bank of the river. The memorial itself is a white stone staircase leading down to the south end of the 1925 highway bridge. It also provided panoramic views of the bridge in 2003 and 2005.
