Description 

The Women’s Christian Temperance Union erected this monument in 1906. The statue of a Civil War soldier was added in 1909 when the GAR Silas Tappen Post #511 and the Berlin Grange raised funds from folks around Rensselaer County to turn it into a memorial for all those in the county who served in the Civil War. After World War II a granite monument was added to honor those who served in World Wars I and II.
