Inscription.

Block 66, set aside by the Corning Co. in 1840 as a public square, has housed a school, churches, and courthouses. Constructed from 1905-1909, the popularly known Courthouse Park was renamed Canfield Park in 1944, in honor of the city engineer who designed and established the park. Renovation was begun in 1992 with the help of the Southside Neighborhood Assoc., Corning Rotary Club, and the city Parks and Recreation Dept.
