The War Veterans' Monument – High Point State Park, Sussex County, New Jersey

The War Veterans' Monument – High Point State Park, Sussex County, New Jersey
High Point, in the northwestern part of New Jersey in Montague, Sussex County in the Skylands Region, is the highest elevation in the state at 1,803 feet (550 m). At the peak is the High Point Monument, a 220-foot (67 m) obelisk, built in 1930 to commemorate the war dead. The outside is made of New Hampshire granite and also Shawangunk quartz. There are four small windows through which observers have a view of the ridges of the Pocono Mountains toward the west, the Catskill Mountains to the north and the Wallkill River Valley in the southeast.

The Monument is an obelisk monument similar to other war monuments, such as the one on Bunker Hill in Massachusetts. Plans were made to close the park as of July 1, 2008 under Gov. Jon Corzine’s budget plan for 2009. Veterans groups, who have held an annual memorial at the site, expressed their opposition to the proposal, which was ultimately removed from the final budget.
