Historical Monuments


The knoll at the north end of the bridge below the present village cemetery was an early burial place. Although most of the bodies have since been removed, a bronze marker, placed by Ferd Chase, commemorates the spot as the resting place of two early settlers who had served in the Revolutionary War.

Site of First Burying Place at Wheelock Hollow used as late as 1814. Two Soldiers of the American Revolutionary War rest here, one has a British Bullet in his body.

Dedication of the Soldiers Monument Memorial Day May 29, 1915 on the 50th Anniversary of the close of the War of the Union. On the front is inscribed "Lest We Forget. Erected 1915. In memory of those men who enlisted from Wheelock in the War of the Rebellion 1861-1865."

If any town should honor the memory of her soldier dead it is this little town which sent eighty-six men, or one tenth of her entire population of 835, to fight for the Union. The monument is made of Barre granite and weighs twelve tons and stands eight feet high.
