Eagle Head Canes
Dating back to the civil war, when soldiers would come home (many with leg injuries), their neighbors would carve a cane for them bearing an eagle head on top to honor their service. The tradition was revived by a woodworking group in New England in 2004. The idea spread across the nation. In Montrose, Montrose Area Woodworkers and area woodcarvers work together to create the canes in honor of our local veterans. Since 2012, over 200 canes have been presented. Applications for the canes are available through Friendship Hall.
