Civil War Monument Update

Chittenden Civil War Monument

After over 100 years of standing in the middle of the village, the Chittenden Civil War monument has been cleaned, and a new fence — made by the original manufacturer — now surrounds it.

Robin Ogg initiated the project, and with Chittenden Historical Society President Steve Welch, contacted the Chittenden Select Board for support of the project. Jan Sotirakis spotted the name identifying the original manufacturer (Stewart Iron Works) on the gate. Steve handled the many details of the fence’s manufacture and also the local refurbishing of the gate. Kim Kinville, Elmer Wheeler and Chris Baker helped Steve with the installation.
