1919-1925, constructed of cast concrete with exposed aggregate, the cross
is a tan color comprised of chipped flint material; arms extend five feet
from the center on each side and are supported by unadorned, arched
concrete brackets; the arms also have arched brackets on top, suggesting
the form of a Celtic cross. Significant as a prominent public monument to
county residents who lost their lives in the line of duty during World War
I; the design of the Peace Cross is the work of master craftsman and
contractor John J. Earley, founder of the Earley Process for concrete.
