A stone monument at the Dowd YMCA sits on the East Morehead Street side of the property near the sidewalk. The monument celebrates cadets who attended the North Carolina Military Institute in the late 1850s and early 1860s. During renovations to the Dowd, the YMCA wants to remove the monument, which contains an image of the Confederate battle flag.
