Location: Haliburton County N 45 02.742 W 078 30.684
On the north side of Highland Street, at the triangular corner of York Street.
The memorial in the village of Haliburton is found downtown on a widened part of the sidewalk. A very attractive and unique memorial, a tall stylized stone with a brass rifle and helmet adorn the front, while a brass plaque bearing the names of the men lost appears on the back.
Nearby the memorial are found a captured German machine-gun and a mortar, both of World War I vintage. A bench along the walkway provides a chance to rest and remember, or take in a pleasant view of the lakefront below.
