Boone County Courthouse Square
Walnut and Eighth Streets Columbia MO
This memorial commemorates the Boone County residents who lost their lives while serving in World War I; 45 names are inscribed on its base. The original figure of the soldier, called a “doughboy,” a name given American infantrymen in WWI, is on view at the Boone County Historical Society where it is protected from the elements. This replica, funded by private donations, was substituted on site in 1996.
