Letter: Susan B Anthony Statue Should Be Placed at Town Hall

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

It was very nice to see the planned park revision for the park by McDonald's in Adams. It appears a lot of work went into developing the plans. Will miss the gazebo. It was great to,have the small concert there.

However, I am really concerned about hiding the Susan B. Anthony statue there where few people traveling through Adams will be able to see the great statue of their native daughter.

Although many people think McKinley was a great president, Susan B. Anthony had a much great impact on our lives and country and deserves a more prominent location. My suggestion is to place it in front of Town Hall. What a beautiful back drop it would be. Everyone that lives or travels through Adams would be able to see it, especially when lit at night. It should be noted that parking is also available.

Town Hall is the center of our government and represent the qualities that Susan B. Anthony stood for: Freedom for all and the right to vote for all.

Adams to Consider Bellevue Cemetery Expansion

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
ADAMS, Mass. — The Cemetery Commission will consider a five-year capital improvement plan and feasibility study to inform the possible expansion of Bellevue Cemetery.
Cemetery Commissioner Bruce Shepley asked the commission last week to consider future projects to include in a five-year capital improvement plan for the town’s cemeteries. 
"I am asking you to put thinking caps on and in the next month come with what you would like to see done at the cemeteries," he said. "Bottom line is what are your thoughts about capital improvements."
Shepley said the commission did produce an improvement plan some years ago, however, he has yet to find it. He added that the Cemetery Department still has funds it can expend to improve the cemeteries but the commissioners would need to figure out how low they can draw this fund.
