1. Redway Plain Marker
Inscription. Redway Plain is named after James Redway, who settled here in the early 1700's. Originally the plain included this field, The Faxon Farm Field,and the Village Cemetery. Neither Winthrop Street or Pond Street existed before 1828.

From colonial times, and for many years after, the local militia used it as a training field. During Indian days, and up to the present. The field has been used to grow a variety of crops including Timothy hay, corn, alfalfa, and vegetables.

Purchased by the citizens of Rehoboth in 1992, the plain is now managed by the Rehoboth Park Commission.
