Honor Roll: Town of Guilford, Connecticut, Guilford Green

The Town of Guilford, Connecticut, is located in New Haven County. The land that became Guilford was purchased from Indian leader Wequash in 1639. It is considered the third largest collection of historic homes in New England. The Henry Whitfield House is the oldest dwelling in Connecticut and the oldest stone house in North America. It dates to 1639.

There are several war memorials on Guilford Green -- another reason for my husband and I to return to this lovely town!

On the top of the two stones on the right and left are these words.

Guilford was home to over five hundred men and women who served in every branch of the United States Armed Forces during the period of December 7, 1941, to September 11, 1945.

Our citizens warriors fought and endured in every battle on Land and sea and in the air, from Pearl Harbor to Toyko Bay in the Pacific Theater and from Northern Africa to Berlin in the European Theater.

Scores of our men were wounded in combat. Sixteen Lost their lives.

We, the citizens of Guilford, establish this memorial as a place of reflection for future generations, that they forever remember the sacrifices and services made by their forebears [sic] during the period of our history known as World War II.

The citizens of Guilford who served on the home front labored intensively in support of the war effort. Over one hundred farms produced dairy, poultry, fruits and vegetables, beef and pork products for our service personnel, our allies and Americans all across our land.

Many men and women worked the three shifts at New Departure, producing ball bearings that turned the treads of tanks, the propellers of aircraft and the intricate mechanisms of the Norden Bombsite, several Guilford foundries, such as I. S. Spencer, produced metal products for the war effort.

Older men and women served as airplane spotters and air raid wardens.

Young boys and girls scoured the fields and yards for old tires and scrap metal.

We worked as a community in unison with people all around the world to preserve democracy and the dignity of mankind.

The Town Southington, Connecticut, is in Hartford County. When it was first settled, the community was known as Panthorne, which was settled in 1698. As the settlement grew, the name was changed to South Farmington, which was later shortened to Southington.

Southington has honor roll memorials in two locations. My husband and I only photographed the memorial in Veterans Memorial Park. We will return to Southington to photograph and transcribe the memorials.

Honor Roll: Town of Great Barrington, Massachusetts, World War I Memorial

The Town of Great Barrington, Massachusetts, in Berkshire County, includes the villages of Van Duesenville and Housatonic. Great Barrington was first settled in 1726. During the Revolutionary War, Henry Knox passed through the town while transporting the canon from Fort Ticonderoga to Boston during the siege of Boston. He was so impressed, he later established agricultural interests in the area.

There are several war memorials, but we only photographed the one honor roll. The War Memorial had these words inscribed:

You Stand Free because They Served

In Everlasting Memory and Tribute to the
Men and Women of Great Barrington
Who, in Defense of their Country and the
Human Rights of Mankind, Served with Honor
and Distinction in the Armed Forces of the
United States of America

World War I, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam

May their Devotion to Duty Remain
an Inspiring Legacy to Future Generations

The Civil War Memorial had these words inscribed:

A Tribute of Honor
And Gratitude to Her
Citizens Who Fought
For Liberty and Union

of Great Barrington

Honor Roll: Town of Stockbridge, Massachusetts: Village Green Veterans Memorials

The Town of Stockbridge, Massachusetts, in Berkshire County, was first settled in by English missionaries in 1734 as a mission to the Mahican Indians. The land for the town had been set aside for the tribe as a reward for their their assistance in the French and Indian Wars. The town was incorporated in 1739 and named Stockbridge after Stockbridge in Hampshire County, England. The agreement with the Indians that the land would never be sold was rescinded and despite the tribe's assistance in the Revolutionary War, they were relocated first to New York and then to Wisconsin. Stockbridge became a resort town with the advent of the railroad and has a long tradition as an art colony.

Personal collection

The honor roll memorials commemorating the service of the men and women who served in the military during times of war are located on the village green near the golf course.

I apologize for the quality of the photograph. It was impossible to block the sun at the time of day we were in Stockbridge. As a result, I have the names but have not transcribed the text surrounding the names.

Honor Roll: Town of Monterey, Massachusetts: World War I Honor Roll

The Town of Monterey, Massachusetts, was first settled by colonists in 1739 as part of Housatonic Township Number One. The town was officially incorporated in 1767 as Tyingham and came to be known as Green Woods or south Tyingham to avoid confusion with Tyingham, the other town in the township. In 1847 residents voted to name the town Monterey to commemorate the Battle of Monterey that took place earlier in the year in the Mexican-American War. The main attraction in Monterey is the Bidwell House Museum.

On the grounds of the town library is a stone with a plaque affixed which lists the names of the men from Monterey who served in what was then called the Great War and now is better known as World War I.

Honor Roll: Becket, Massachusetts, Ballou Park

The Town of Beckett, Massachusetts, was first settled in 1740 and officially incorporated in 1765. It was named for an estate in Shrivenham, England, which belonged to William Barrington, Admiral Lord Barrington, a great friend of Sir Francis Bernard, the royal governor of Massachusetts at the time the town was incorporated.

Ballou Park is located at the intersection of Main Street (Route 8) and Prentice Place. The park contains four honor roll memorials commemorating the men and women who served in the Revolutionary War through the Vietnam Conflict.
