CT-005 The Green A

Marker text: The Green. Continued - "The County Jall stood on the north side at the foot of the hill; the Court-House was in the open area; the Post-Office not far from the meeting-house taverns, schools and shops alternating with private dwellings around the border." Opposition to British rule increased over the next few years and the residents erected Liberty Tree, "a lofty pole... decked with standards and appropriate devices... Here, almost daily, people assembled to hear the news, make speeches and encourage each other in the determination to resist all oppressions."
