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.
