In Raynham, near the center of town, is the Raynham Public Library, which has a Civil War Monument in the front lawn.
The library and monument are on the northwest side of South Main Street, about 200 ft from the intersection of South Main, North Main, Pleasant and Orchard Streets.
The monument is very visible from the road. It is made of stone, and has a Civil War soldier at the top, at ease, holding the 'business end' of the rifle. His cape flutters around him.
