River Driver Memorial Project

01/22/2021


Council: 680 - MILLINOCKET

Project Description:

The River Driver Memorial is an ongoing project to maintain, preserve, and upgrade the final resting place of two
men who perished in the early days of using the river to bring logs to the sawmills. This memorial, on the Rice Farm
Road in Millinocket, had fallen in disrepair because of neglect until 2013 when the Knights of Council 680 decided to
assume responsibility to upgrade and preserve this memorial. In the last 7 years, members, cut trees, branches, and
other debris to clear the site, killed weeds and planted ground cover to enhance the site, placed a memorial stone
with the names of the two loggers who were laid to rest there, and repaired and upgraded the crosses that were
placed there many years ago. On June 13th, we cut more debris and continued to upgrade the road leading to the
boat landing and the Memorial. We hope to continue providing upgrades to the site with the intention of making this
a must see for the citizens of Millinocket and its many visitors for many years to come.
