3. Rosedale WWI Memorial Arch. Although we no longer think of Rosedale, KS as a small town, in the 1920’s it truly was the home of a small community on the outskirts of Kansas City. This Arc de Triomphe style memorial sits high on a hill over the Rosedale neighborhood to remind us of the veterans of the 42nd Rainbow Division of WWI. Later names of Vietnam and Korean veterans from Rosedale were added. It is on memorials like these that we may find our veteran ancestor’s names. Dedicated in 1924.
