I Saw The Marker

The "Early British Cannon" marker is on the corner of Poultney and South Williams Streets, in front of the Armory. The cannons in front of the Armory were removed several years ago when the property came under private ownership. The historical marker remains, but it is in rough shape.
The photo and comments submitted by noel55 are incorrect. Noel55's photo is of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument to Civil War veterans, dedicated on August 24, 1899, and located on Cliff Street (on the side of Skene Mountain overlooking Whitehall).

  1. noel55's photo is of a Parrott Gun in somebody's yard at the end of Cliff Street, in Whitehall, N.Y. It's not the "Early British Cannon" that this is about. I'm interested in finding out how this Parrott Gun came to be where it is, and if any body has an idea, please let me know. Thanks bp
