There are seventeen trees
in this Memorial Park
dedicated in memory of
our WWI Veterans

and all the Veterans
of the Great War.
——————————————
520 men and women from the
Town of Adams served in WWI.
Sixteen were killed in action.

On Nov. 27, 1922 Memorial Park
was dedicated in memory of
the sixteen casualties and
all others who served.

This redesigned, enlarged
and refurbished park was
rededicated to honor the
memory of those sixteen
and all others who served
from our community.

As you enjoy this park,
please take a moment to
think of the WWI Veterans
and all Veterans whose
sacrifices have made
this nation so great
