  • There's more to the Murtaugh Park:


    At one time, the park contained a memorial for Police Chief N.J. (Jeff) Hutson, who was shot and killed in the line of duty Oct. 7, 1922.

    It also had a hawthorne tree, "one of the finest specimen of its kind to be found anywhere," that was planted by the Wednesday Club on April 11, 1923, to honor Miss Amy Husband Kimmel, who founded the club in 1902.
