The Soldier’s Monument - Unionville

2 School Street 

Intersections of Main Street (Rte 4) & Lovely Street (Rte 177)

 

 

The Soldier’s Monument has a special significance because it was primarily the philanthropy of a single individual, Captain Nathaniel C. Hayden (1836-1916).  Hayden volunteered for service in the Civil War in 1862, becoming a captain in Company G, 16th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers.  He was wounded at Antietam and invalided home.  For 15 years he conducted a coal, feed, and general trucking business in Unionville until his retirement.  The monument depicts a soldier in the Union Army and is located near the First Church of Christ Congregational.
