Plattsville

 

Location:  Oxford County     N 43.30508   W -80.61709

80 Mill Street East, between the Public School and the arena.

The Plattsville Memorial Park was established at this location in 1958, consisting of an impressive park gate and stone pillars, along with a pair of more recent signs.  The memorial was originally unveiled in 1921 but eventually moved to the Memorial Park.  The names of those lost in the World Wars are forever remembered on a sign attached to a cobblestone pillar, while the plaques on the gates give a more general respect to all who served.  A more recent addition is a sign post dedicated to a local soldier lost in the Afghanistan War.  A very nice and fitting tribute to honour the brave heroes of this small farming community.
