A World War I memorial statue, "The Spirit of The American Dough Boy" was dedicated on September 6, 1927 following its acquisition through a project sponsored jointly by the local American Legion and VFW Posts. The solider is forever immortalized in statue form, as seen in his war apparel and stance.

The Dough Boy is a symbol of freedom and remembrance of those who fought for our land. This monument sits in the heart of Herrin on Park Avenue and Adams Street after multiple relocations. There are only a few Dough Boys in the country and Herrin is honored to have one of 90 in the U.S.
