    There are several in New Hampshire, two of which I can recall immediately: Tilton and Dublin. And many other communities, such as Plymouth and Keene, have built traffic circles around former “village greens” which include a veterans memorial. Plymouth’s has all the bells and whistles: a gazebo/bandstand (which is still isdd regularly in nice weather), a bronze statue and fountain honoring the Boy Scouts, and a memorial to Nathaniel Hawthorne, who died in Plymouth in 1864 at a hotel which used to stand a few yards away from the green.

    There’s a stately Soldiers and Sailors monument in Kennebunkport, ME, that acts as a small rotary in Dock Square, right in the heart of town. It was designed by painter Abbot Graves, who formed a community society to raise funds for its construction in 1909. A brass eagle on top of the monument was sculpted by Anthony Zottoli of Boston. After WWI, the town added a plaque listing the residents lost in the war. According to an old photo I found, there used to be a scale in this spot (it’s in a a shipbuilding center) – now it has such gravitas!
