Long Description:
Across the street form Pepperell's Town Hall building is small park-like area. In this park-like area is a large memorial bench. This memorial honors the men from Pepperell who fell at the Battle of Bunker Hill. The entire structure is made of polished stone. The center of the bench's back is built much higher then the rest of the back. On this extended back, is a plaque with the names of the fallen. It reads:

Nathaniel Parker
William Warren
Ebenezer Laughton
Joesph Spaulding
Benjamin Wood
Edmund Piece
for you they died"

The top the extended back is rounded at the top, with some decoration around the edge. On the front of the rounded top is an image of what seem to be powder horns with straps on them. Beneath them is an inscription of the giver of this memorial.

of a descendant
of Colonel William Prescott"

On the backside of the bench's extended back is another inscription.
