Memorial Park is a 1.25-acre sloping site dedicated in 1894. At the top of the slope is a 40-foot Barre granite Soldiers ad Sailors Monument, the design of which is attributed to Saint Gaudens, commemorating the Civil War Service of some 400 Town of Antwerp boys and men. Located at the corner of Madison Avenue and Main Streets, the site harmonizes with the scattered residential and semi-rural setting around it.
