The Civil War Soldiers' Monument, 1902.
The Monument was erected on a lot purchased by the GAR Post 181. The guns and cannon balls were loaned by the US Congress, but when it became time to reclaim them, it was found that they had been welded together and could no longer be used. Over 400 Needham residents served in the Civil War.
