One of the last traces of old Victoriatown is a stone monument dedicated to the men and women who served in World War II. It sits behind a fence, neglected. It reads:

 In grateful tribute to the men and women of this community who served in WWII 1939 – 1945 and dedicated to the glory of those who died in this great cause.
