On Monday, under the watchful eye of site contractor Rocco DelGrosso and members of the Historical Association of Lewiston, the Tuscarora Heroes monument was installed on Center Street. Statues of three Native Americans, representing the Tuscarora nation, were planted in a park that pays tribute to "Tuscarora Heroes" - the brave men and women who rushed Lewiston residents out of the village during the 1813 British invasion.

The monument and park will be officially unveiled Dec. 19 at "Flames Through Lewiston." That day is 200 years to the date of the burning of Lewiston. (photos by Joshua Maloni)
