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 The agreement with the Indians that the land would never be sold was rescinded and despite the tribe's assistance in the Revolutionary War, they were relocated first to New York and then to Wisconsin.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.
