Mary Musgrove Monument

This monument, erected in the early 20th century, stands as a reminder of the legendary Mary Musgrove. She is remembered as a character in the 19th century novel Horseshoe Robinson who took great personal risks spying for the Patriots.

While we do know that an actual Mary Musgrove (1755-1795) lived on this site, we do not know what specific role she played in the American Revolution. Her legend does, however, stand as a tribute to the countless women who served as spies, messengers and even combatants during America's fight for independence.
