This website is to inform the public about the progress of creating a Purple Heart Memorial in Montville, NJ. The memorial site will be located in Montville, NJ on property provided by the Board of Education. The monument site will be on the corner of Horseneck Road and the entrance to the High School. This prominent location will make the memorial visible Every Day to the thousands of township students, teachers, parents and siblings as well as visiting sports teams, coaches and parents that enter the High School Grounds.
