DescriptionAmerican colonists burned a cargo of East India tea in the Greenwich town square on Dec. 22, 1774. It was one of six “tea parties”—Boston's being the most famous—held to protest British taxation that led up to the Revolutionary War. The Tea Burners Monument, erected in 1908 at the corner of Ye Greate Street and Market Lane, commemorates the historic event. The Cumberland County Prehistoric Museum , 1461 Bridgeton Rd., offers a one-room display of stone and bone artifacts, pottery and marine fossils; phone (856) 455-8141.
