Honor Roll: Congress Park, Saratoga Springs, New York

Last December I drove to Saratoga Springs to listen to a very interesting presentation on the history of the mineral springs in the city. The springs were known to the Mohawk Indians likely for centuries. The tribe did not reveal the springs to European settlers until 1771 when they invited the Indian agent for the British crown to visit the springs when he was ill. The rest is history and Saratoga became the number one destination in the United States at one time. Today, the city is known for health (mineral water baths), history, and horses.

During the presentation, I learned there was an honor roll memorial in Congress Park. So Pete and I returned to the city to photograph it. As you enter the downtown business area traveling north on Broadway (Rt. 9), you pass Congress Park. On the park grounds is the World War Pavilion, erected in 1931 on the site of the 1882 Congress Spring Victorian Bandstand.

World War Pavilion in Congress Park, Saratoga Springs, New York; personal

There are seven brass plaques mounted on stone tablets between the columns. Each plaque includes the names of the citizens of the city who served in World War I.

The center plaque. There are three to the left and three to the right of this
