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.
