  • War Memorial– Erected by the town of Phoenix in 1920, this memorial is dedicated to the local war dead of the First World War. As Phoenix is over 4,000' in elevation and, for many years, not accessible on November 11th, a bronze plaque bearing the same names as the Phoenix Cenotaph was mounted on the Cenotaph at Kettle Valley. Phoenix is a mining ghost town and only a Cenotaph and graveyard remain.
