Miller's Park: A wonderful, peaceful, park exists at 221 Hovey Road in Monson for parties, reunions and for civic organizations like the scouts. The park was started in 1976 by the descendants of Robert and Amy Miller who raised eighteen children on their farm on Hovey Road. The park is named "Miller Memorial Park" in memory of Robert and Amy and for five of their son's who served in World War II and for one son who was missing in action in the Korean Conflict. The family formed a charity in 1980, Miller Memorial Association, Inc. with the purpose of recreation and preservation of wildlife and forests. If anyone would like to reserve the park for a function, please call 413-682-4374. The facility includes a pavilion, kitchen, and toilets.
