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

Erected by the Town

World War I

The World War I honor roll is located on the courthouse grounds.
