North Hanover Monuments

Women's Military Monument

Location: In the monument garden of the Brigadier General William C. Doyle Memorial Cemetery at Arneytown in North Hanover Township. Located on Province Line Road, which intersects Route 664, 537 and 528.

Significance - This unique monument honors women of all branches of Military Service who have served their country throughout America's history. Atop the monument is a sculpture of a Revolutionary or Civil War period woman, reminiscent of traditional images of Molly Pitcher. Around the base of the monument are the emblems of the various branches of service. On May 30th 1986 Gov. Tom Kean established New Jersey’s first state-operated veteran’s memorial “Dedicated to those men and women who put their lives on the line to defend our country’s honor and freedom”.

Directions: Arneytown is practically on the border with Monmouth County. Using a map, you should get your bearings by pinpointing Jacobstown, accessing it via Monmouth Road, and then taking Jacobstown-Arneytown Road to the intersection with Chesterfield Road. There are signs to the Military Cemetery throughout the area. An approach from the Bordentown area would be via Route 528 on Chesterfield-Arneytown Road.
