The Pagoda, WWI Memorial, Memory Grove Park, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
Salt Lake City

The first memorial constructed in Salt Lake City's Memory Grove Park, The Pagoda honors Utahns who gave their lives for their country during World War I.  Built in a classic style in the 1920s, the Pagoda has eight columns supporting a circular crest or entablature (all but the roof).  The marble used in its construction was from the same source used in the construction of the Lincoln Monument in Washington, D.C.  In 1932 a central octagonal column and urn were added bearing the names of fallen Utahns.

Originally created as a city park in 1902, Memory Grove Park was dedicated in 1924 as a memorial for America's soldiers and contains several other monuments in addition to The Pagoda.  On August 11, 1999 a tornado passed through Memory Grove Park resulting in the destruction of over 400 old trees.  No monuments were damaged.
