  1. A little useless factoid about that top photo…

    According to William Preble Jones, the cylindrical gray section of that base (with the eagle on top) was originally a millstone. The City had two of them which they received/rescued from a nearby grist mill which, when worn too much to be of use, were re-tasked by the City in the early 1900s and used as rollers for compacting and smoothing the Macadam surface on the streets. They were towed behind steam-powered tractors since the City did not have a steam roller. When the WWI Memorial was constructed, one of the millstones was used for this monument base. Thanks for the picture Skip.
