Korean War Memorial

Located in Barrows Park, the memorial is comprised of three separate monuments grouped closely together. The largest, and most distinctive, was dedicated on June 15, 1996. This is a 13-foot-by-13-foot granite arch designed to represent the gateway to a Korean city. The words "Korean War Memorial" appear at the top, while the names of seven North Attleborough men who died in Korea are below.

There are four marble benches in front of the arch. The arch also bears the insignias of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps. and Coast Guard. On the back side of the arch are the words "Freedom is not Free."

Behind the arch is a short pathway leading to a separate granite stone with two bronze plaques containing the names of about 450 veterans from North Attleborough who served in the Korean War. Directly behind this is a flagpole and a stone of local "red rock" with a small bronze plaque, dedicated by the North Attleborough Veterans Council on June 30, 1978, which reads:

"Dedicated to the memory of those who made the supreme sacrifice and in honor of all those who served their country during the war known as the Korean Conflict."
