Located on the corner of Foster and Front Streets is the Central Massachusetts Korean War Memorial, which was dedicated on November 9, 2003.
The Korean War Memorial on Worcester Center Boulevard near Washington Square honors the 191 young soldiers from Worcester County who made the supreme sacrifice in the Korean War. A polished black granite wall is inscribed with the soldier's names. Thousands of people attended the dedication ceremony, which was the culmination of an effort that spanned decades.
A bronze heroic statue of a Korea era American GI and a Korean child was added later. This statue represents the 100,000 orphans saved by the soldiers during and after the war. The child also symbolizes bright prospects for the future of Korea. Educational signs, additional flagpoles and a Walkway of Honor situated in a tree-lined setting were also added to the Memorial. The walkway includes memorial bricks inscribed with the names of Massachusetts' fallen war heroes from Iraq, Afghanistan and the Gulf, as well as six American news correspondents who died in Iraq and Pakistan.
In addition to the Korean War Memorial, the City of Worcester is home to many other war memorials and landmarks. There are six major War Memorials, which honor those who served in the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War and Southeast Asia War.
In addition, you can find public art, murals, statues and sculptures and other art installations around the City.
