During the tornado of August 1979, the Town Hall at Oxford Centre was destroyed and subsequently the monument was moved to the Pioneer Cemetery. Whereas the two WWII memorial tablets that had been erected in 1946 at the Town Hall were moved to the new Township of Norwich office, located in Oxford Centre."
