To the Editor:

We create landmarks like the Underground Railroad plaque at the north end of the Village Green in New Milford to keep alive the memory of significant people and events, and to keep alive their ideas.

My gratitude goes out to Mayor Pat Murphy, Tammy Reardon and, most especially, George Pineman, who designed and donated the plaque recently dedicated.

Thanks also to the New Milford Historical Society for its time and effort in placement of the plaque at the foot of the Abraham Lincoln monument.
