Alliston - Alliston Union School
Location: Simcoe County, New Tecumseth N 44 09.022 W 079 52.150
Located in front of Alliston Union Public School, at 25 Albert Street.
This memorial is dedicated to those who fought and died in the Great War. All names are of those who attended the school in this small town. A brass plaque adorns the front of the memorial, while the back shows engraving of the major battles of the war.
The future of this memorial appears to be in some jeopardy, as the school may be slated to close in the near future. At this time I am not aware of the outcome of the decision, or of the plans to possibly re-located the memorial.
