Memorial Bench

Olin J Stephens Memorial Bench, Mystic Seaport

There are many ways in which people are memorialized.  Buildings, roads, bridges, monuments and the like are erected to remember those who have gone before us, and who have had an impact while here on earth.  Benches are a particularly nice way to be remembered.  This one remembers Olin J Stephens,  yacht builder and trustee of Mystic Seaport.  I'm not sure if I'll ever accomplish enough in my life time to warrant a memorial of any kind, but if it should come to pass, I would want to have a memorial park bench.
