Have you ever walked around the civic center in the center of town and noticed those plaques and signs and wondered what they said?

Jeff Shilling did, and he took his cell phone camera around town to record what he learned. There are monuments to history, like the Bicentennial marker and the Native American Trail. (The land under Verona was purchased from the Lenni Lenape tribe by the citizens of Newark in 1702.) There are markers for buildings that played a part in our early history, like the one for one of our first schools. There are two monuments to the many Veronans who died in service to their country and another to the two residents who died in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. One thing we noticed when we paid more attention to the plaque on the World War I monument: Two women from Verona served in the Great War.

So take a minute to look a Jeff’s photos of the monuments–and then go take your own close-up look.
