Brockton Firefighters Strand Theatre Fire Memorial

Brockton, MA
2008

This Memorial commemorates the historic fire that destroyed the Strand Theatre in Brockton, MA on March 10, 1941. Thirteen men of the Brockton Fire Department lost their lives in the incident, and the Memorial is a serene and solemn reminder of their service and sacrifice. The names of all thirteen are inscribed and gold-leafed in the front of the polished granite base. Narrative plaques on the perimeter of the plaza tell the story of the tragic fire. An annual remembrance ceremony is held at the memorial.
