Venango County's only full-scale monument honoring local residents who served in World War I was unveiled during ceremonies held Saturday in front of the courthouse in Franklin.

Noting that it was 100 years ago that World War I began, Bob Billingsley of Franklin said the new monument - a granite base featuring etched World War I scenes topped by a statue of a doughboy - rightfully honors those who served.
