307th Infantry Regiment Memorial Grove

The 307th Infantry Regiment Memorial Grove, at the northeastern end of the Mall, honors the memory of soldiers who gave their lives in World War I.

After the war, young trees were planted in the grove—each representing one of the regiment's companies—which features a memorial plaque naming the men of that company who died in battle. The Grove also contains the 307th Infantry Regiment Stone, with its plaque honoring all companies, and the Knights of Pythias Stone. The Knights of Pythias was a fraternal order chartered by Congress in 1864 with the mission to promote universal understanding and peace.
