Statues and Plaques in Gloucester From Peter Dorsey- The World War II Monument

Hey Joey,

Here is a World War II monument that many people might be passing by every day without knowing it. Located at the intersection of Gee Avenue and Washington Street in Riverdale are set of handsome granite steps and a monument dedicated to the residents of Riverdale who fought and died in the Second World War.

  • I used to live right down the street, walked my dog by it every morning. I am sure it gets overlooked though, not the best location, but a great monument nonetheless!


  • Near the origins of The Fishtown Horribles Parade. First, there was the Riverdale Horribles (which I ‘marched in). Then it evolved into the Fishtown Horribles.
    Started on Gee Ave and down toward Babson’s Farm (I think there is another memorial around there.
