WWI Washington

Town of Washington Tribute Garden

The Tribute Garden was planned and landscaped by the Millbrook Garden Club and in 1920 was dedicated as a tribute to our Forces of World War I. At the request of the Garden Club it was taken over in 1943 by the Tribute Garden Incorporated. Through this organization Oakleigh Thorne created a foundation for its support and subsequently added land for the Veteran's Green

Trees were planted in "The Court of Honor" by the families of the soldiers and sailors who went from the Town of Washington to fight for their country in the “World War.”  Some of the trees have been replaced over the years, some have not. Some were intentionally removed to accommodate a sidewalk.

There is a monument of Field Artillery inscribed, "Used in action at St. Mihiel Offensive by 1st Battalion French Artillery Sept. 12, 1918 and at Bois Le Pretre and Argonne Offensive Sept. 26, 1918. Dedicated 1920. Funded byTribute Garden, Inc.  Submission by James Inglis.
