Will Re-Dedicate Memorial to Colonel Bigelow
from the Worcester Newspaper
NEW FLAGSTAFF, ME October 5th 1951--
A Bronze marker honoring Col. Timothy Bigelow, Worcester Mass.,
Revolutionary War hero, originally set at the foot of Mount Bigelow
will be re-dedicated here October 17.
The marker , a gift of Col. Timothy Bigelow Chapter Daughter of
the American Revolution, of Worcester, was first erected in 1935 in
the town of Flagstaff.
It was placed at the front of the Mountain in honor of Colonel
Bigelow, believed to be the first man to climb Mount Bigelow.
Due to the recent flooding of the area by the Central Maine Power
Company to make an artificial lake to insure hydro-electric power for
the towns along the Kennebec river, the Worcester-donated marker was
re-located in New Flagstaff.
