Location: N 44° 42.749 W 075° 30.611 On the north side of Highway 2 (King Street), in front of Fort Wellington.
A very tall and well-kept cenotaph. This monument is located on the grounds of Fort Wellington, a national historic site. Fort Wellington was used during the War of 1812, and is certainly worth the visit. This cenotaph overlooks the St. Lawrence River and list the names of those from the town of Prescott, who did not return from the two World Wars and Korea.
The cenotaph was originally located at the municipal building on Dibble Street, where is was displayed for 40 years. In 2001, it was moved to a more prominent place in front of Fort Wellington, where it is tended by Parks Canada, who oversee the fort.
