Parting Ways Cemetery

Four young men, African-Americans from Plymouth, served in the American Revolution. Cato Howe was a freeman who had probably never been enslaved. Plato Turner and Prince Goodwin were former slaves. Quamany Quash, who fought for liberty for his country, was himself enslaved and not emancipated until after his military service.Following the war, the Town of Plymouth granted these men acreage near the Kingston border, in an area known as Parting Ways. Howe, Turner, Goodwin and Quash - with their families - established a settlement there known as the New Guinea Settlement. These four American Patriots are buried at Parting Ways and their gravesites marked with American flags. Read more about Parting Ways Cemetery

Middleborough Veterans Memorial Park

The Middleborough Veterans Memorial Park offers a unique collection of remembrances and dedications to those who served. The park was designed as a 50 foot circle, and in its center stands a 40 foot flagpole on an elevated piece of granite. The flag is supported by bricks, engraved with the names of both veterans and non-veterans. The physical support that these name-engraved bricks give the flag symbolizes of the support that each person gave either to their country or to an individual's life. Surrounding the brick-paved circle is a granite wall designed to look like a compass rose. A concrete walkway surrounds the compass wall, passing by dedicated monuments and benches. The park features Read more about Middleborough Veterans Memorial Park
