Stanbery Park (Mt. Washington)
• Caretaker’s Residence: In the past, a charming Tudor Revival house was the home of Brigadier general Sanford B. Stanbery, the highest-ranking officer from Hamilton County in World War I for whom the park was named. It is built in the Tudor Revival style.
• World War I Memorial: Known as “The Boy and the Book,” this life-size bronze sculpture shows a young man sitting on a tree stump with an open book on his lap. The piece was created by Arturo Ivone and dedicated in 1938 as a World War I memorial.
