Nutley High School Civil War Memorial

(May 25, 1958) - The new Civil War Memorial in front of the Junior High School auditorium will be formally dedicated during Memorial Day ceremonies on Friday morning.

The bronze plaque was originally set in boulder at the corner of Franklin Avenue and New Street but made way for the Junior High School classroom addition.

This plaque containing 55 names of Nutley men who served in the Civil War has been refurbished.

It was presented to the Board of Education by school children in 1909. The memorial is built of Tennessee marble. (The Nutley Sun)
