Long Description:

The Terryville Civil War monument is a 20' stone obelisk resting on a granite plinth. Over the years the names chiseled in the sort stone became illegible. In 1983 a series of four bronze plaques containing the original information was placed over the weathered faces of the monument. The monument was erected on or before 1865.

The base of the front has, in raised letters, the inscription:

SOLDIERS
