Matthews International has designed and cast some of the most notable bronze memorials in the United States. One of the company's highest-profile projects includes handcrafting and casting the plaques used in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. Matthews also cast the metal plaque situated on the top of Pike's Peak to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the composition of "America the Beautiful." Matthews has cast bronze memorialization tributes for some of the most popular celebrities in America, including Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, Humphrey Bogart, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis, Jr., Alan Ladd, Michael Landon, Liberace, Groucho Marx, and Selena. Elvis Presley’s bronze memorial, situated on the southern end of Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee, is considered to be the most visited piece of work ever cast by Matthews, with more than 700,000 people visiting the site annually.

Matthews has also done a significant number of bronze memorials for American veterans of wars. One of the company's most recent bronze memorials included the installation of a tribute to the men and women of the 14th Quartermaster Detachment Unit at the U.S. Army Reserve Center in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, which suffered the most casualties of any unit in the entire Allied Force throughout the duration of the hostilities between the United Nations and Iraq. The memorial includes the boots, a rifle, and helmet of a fallen soldier, life-sized American soldiers cast in bronze reflecting on the fate of their fallen comrade-in-arms, and an imposing bronze eagle, which symbolizes the bravery and honor of American soldiers in battle.
