Troop 1, Barre, Vermont

( north side )
In 1909, Barre stonecutter and Scottish Immigrant William Foster Milne founded America's first boy scout troop with materials shipped directly from Europe's fledgling Boy Scout movement.
"In the basement of the Baptist Church, he taught us the meaning of citizenship, patriotism, moral conduct and the proper attitude toward others"
(Governor Deane C. Davis)
( south side )
In the mid-1800's the booming granite industry brought waves of immigrants to Barre from neighboring Canada and across Europe, making it one of the state's most diversely populated cities. The beauty of "Barre Grey" granite and the craftsmanship of the city's stoneworkers earned the city the title of "Granite Center of the World"
( east side )
Carlo Abate was born in Italy and immigrated to America in 1896. A talented stone artist, he founded the Barre Evening Drawing School in 1911 and taught everything from freehand drawing to monument drafting. A world-renowned sculptor, his contributions to Barre include the figures at the entrance to Hope Cemetery and the concept for this monument.
