The Town Common is the site of community gatherings, including Art on the Common, Concerts on the Common and the Town's largest event: Old Home Day.  The Common features a bandstand and picnic tables.  The Common also contains the Soldiers Memorial, commemorating veterans from the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I and World War II.  Click here for a history of the Town Common.
