The ground at this intersection, "Historic Crossroads of the American Revolution," had long been a grassy triangle. In 1908 Charles E. Suffern gave the village this cannon, and the stone wall was built around it. Some residents, disliking the new triangle, nicknamed it "Porter's Fort" after the mayor and tried to have it removed. In 1921 the soldier's statue was erected. The names of those who served our country since World War I are listed.
