Civil War Plaque, 1861-1866

The Civil War plaque that is on permanent exhibit next to the Information Services Desk was researched for several months. Documents from the Local History Collection confirm that on June 7, 1912, at a meeting of the Cold Spring Harbor Village Improvement Society,  Mr. J.H.J. Stewart proposed to erect a memorial tablet to honor residents that enlisted during the Civil War.  For more information about the history of the plaque and to read the names that appear on it, please download the brochure.
