Hyde Park

There are four items in the vicinity of the Lamoille County Court House in Hyde Park. Two cannon on are either side of the walkway to the front door of the courthouse, and a list of names of the men who served on the front of the town Library across the street. Just to the east of the courthouse is a modern monument commemorating veterans of the Civil War, Spanish-American War, World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam.
