Farmington Civil War Memorial (Phillips, Maine)


Description: Located in Farmington's Meetinghouse Park, this obelisk monument commemorates the 378 Soldiers and Sailors of Farmington, who were either killed or missing in action. The monument was funded by George W. Ranger, a private in the 53rd Mass. Infantry and the 6th Maine Battery Light Artillery and presented to the town in memory of his comrades who were killed during the war. The monument itself was made by the Hallowell Granite Company, and is a copy of the 16th Maine Regiment Monument located at Gettysburg. It was erected in 1903.
