Massachusetts XV

I love Massachusetts. Beautiful towns, great scenery and remarkable memorials to their veterans. The state memorial in Worcester is one of the first I saw on this journey and one of my very favorites. You can find it elsewhere on this site.

Northbridge lies about 40 or so miles west and a little south of Boston and they have a beautiful Vietnam memorial.

It sits across the street from the Town Commons on Main Street near the intersection of Hill and Linden Streets.

The two adjacent panels list the name of the more than 400 from the area who served in 'Nam.

The granite used is meant to honor The Wall in DC and the top of the center piece is "rocked" to resemble the state memorial.

In the plaza surrounding the memorial there are pavers honoring many of those who served. these pavers are often sold as fundraisers to help with the cost of memorials and frequently they are available to buy long after the memorial is complete.

Also, I have seen the town referred to as Whitinsville so take note if following Google or AAA, etc.

The memorial was dedicated at 11:00am on the 11/11/11.

Next time, on the 7th, we will make a return trip to New Jersey, so meet me there at 9:00am.
