"We have a rich history and I am so pleased that so many people and so many young people have come to really understand and appreciate it and celebrate it with us," said First Selectman Peter Tesei.

Greenwich is turning 375 years old this year & on Sunday, the town kicked off its year long celebration with the rededication of a historic landmark.

"Three-hundred and seventy-five year is a long time. We learn from our past and it is important not only to understand it and appreciate it but to celebrate it," said First Selectman Tesei.

The memorial artwork depicts General Israel Putnam's escape down the steep precipice on what is now Putnam Avenue to seek reinforcements during a Revolutionary War battle in Greenwich in February of 1779.

"It is so critically important, especially for our young people to appreciate the history that went into creating the Town of Greenwich. It didn't come easily. It came as a result of a big struggle. There was a lot of sacrifice to create the Town of Greewich and a lot of sacrifice to create what we know today as the United States," said State Senator Scott Frantz.
