The Welles Monument features a bronze figure in flowing gown and holding a small wreath signifying memory. The statue, marked on the right side of the base, is by Carl Conrads, New England Granite Works’ house sculptor.

With generous public support, Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation preserved the bronze in 2006.
