Liberty Tree Plaque Installed

The plaques commemorating the Liberty Tree at Conanicut Battery Park were installed Friday, July 3rd. The Liberty Tree was planted in 1976 as part of Jamestown’s bi- centennial activities.

Larry McDonald and Dennis Webster masterfully did the job and we are very grateful to them for their efforts.  On behalf of the JHS, thank you Larry and Dennis!

Visit the Battery soon to see them and enjoy the views. For more information, visit our Battery page in our website.
