Memorial Day is right around the corner here in the States so I thought I’d feature Enfield’s Town Hall because it sits adjacent to a war memorial.
Memorials like this are common in the US, almost every little town has some section set aside to commemorate those who have died in service to their country. In my town, we actually have a building called Memorial Hall that was built after the Civil War. Most of our memorials are on the lawn of that building. I haven’t featured the doors of Memorial Hall because they are usually closed, with the stark white shades drawn and they aren’t all that attractive like that.
Enfield is two towns to the north of where I live. Depending on your route, it’s either north of East Windsor or northeast of Suffield. It’s on the other side of the Connecticut River from us but it’s only about a 10-15 minute drive. That’s New England, a bunch of small towns knitted together. Connecticut is the third smallest state, but we have 169 towns. Enfield is the 21st largest town by population, with 44,895 according to the 2008 census.
The pictures are described in detail, so I won’t repeat that here. If you’re interested, you can click on any one of them to start a slide show. This post is part of Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors series. If you find doors as interesting as we do, snap a pic and join the fun.
