Monument to Woodrow Wilson

Unknown
1924
Bronze and stone

This piece commemorates the Atlanta Woman’s Club planting of elm and crepe myrtle trees as a living memorial to President Woodrow Wilson. This area is now known as Wilson Park Triangle. President Wilson died on February 3, 1924, and the dedication of the plaque and trees was held later that year in May. President Wilson served during World War I and was an advocate of world peace. The Atlanta Woman’s Club was started in 1895 and still exists today. The club is a non-profit philanthropic organization made up of professional women of all ages, races and religions who share a common goal: to work together to improve the local community, socially, physically, culturally and educationally.
