War Memorial Park – West Bridgewater MA

Description

Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) workers constructed War Memorial Park in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts. From a W.P.A. Bulletin:

The historic home of Capt. John Ames, built in 1774 in West Bridgewater, featuring “Pulpit Rock” where Rev. John Keith in 1663 preached his first sermon to settlers in this country, is being converted by a WPA project into a five-acre park and beauty spot.
