1. Concord's Architectural Heritage Marker
Inscription.

These architectural artifacts from historic
Concord buildings—pilaster capitals, gargoyles,
cornices and other decorative stonework—are displayed here...

In celebration of
Concord's Architectural Heritage
whose richness and variety make our city a
living museum of architectural styles;

In honor of
Concord's Artists and Craftsmen
whose skills and artistry over the years have
created wonders on stone and made Concord
Granite famous throughout the United States; and
In special recognition of

Martin L. Gross,
Mayor of Concord, 1976 - 1981.
Whose leadership, persistence and vision have
contributed so much to the economic
revitalization of downtown Concord,
a revitalization built upon the recognition,
the preservation, and ultimately our
simple enjoyment of Concord's architectural
and historic heritage.

Eagle Square
A community place, a special place,
a place for people... Eagle Square is an
invitation to stroll and to sit, to enjoy the
beauty of flowers and the sound of water.
This is a place to look upward to feel the sun,
to watch, to converse and to listen to the
music around us; a place to share...
a place created out of the community spirit
which is Concord.

We who have created this special place,
who have struggled and sweated and
persevered to create Eagle Square, have done
so in order that we all may better
enjoy the life and the spirit which is our city.

Duncan S. McGowan
