Soldiers' Memorial Hall

-A A +A
1889–1890. Northeast corner of Central and Federal streets

Four wings with gable roofs project from the sides of a tiny octagon to form this memorial. The Gothic Revival pointed windows help to convey the impression that this is a small chapel. Atop the roof of the central octagon is a small platform supporting a statue of a Civil War soldier.
