The Children's Obelisk

(The Children's Obelisk is Located South of the Soldiers and Sailor Monument. Photographed by Ruth Parish in 2006.)

In 1925, the "Children's Obelisk" was erected. It is a cement pyramid about three feet high with a bronze plaque attached to the pyramid that reads: "1925, To the Children of San Bernardino by A.E.O. Sciots No. 38". (The initials A.E.O. refer to Ancient Egyptian Order of Sciots, a part of the Blue Lodge of the Masons. This organization has long been known for its good work for children.)
