History of Pittsfield

Veterans Park

The newest park in the Town, constructed in 2000 and located next to the RR tracks on Main Street, at the location of the former Lancey House. This park has over 857 Pittsfield veterans, from the Revolutionary War to the present on it’s honor roll. The list of names for the stones was compiled by Arthur Dewey.

Thanks to the American Legion, Burns W. Knowlton Jr Post and the Ladies Auxiliary.

A document listing Pittsfield veterans of American Wars from the Civil War to the Vietnam War, in printable pdf format is here. It was collated by Tom Brown from various sources.
