Description
The park beside the Old Stone Square Building is the result of a corporate lawsuit which forced the building's architect, Edward Larrabee Barnes, to limit his appropriation of the views and land of historic South Main Street. The outcome of the suit was the creation of a public space that reconciled his construction on such a historic site.
