Shortly after purchasing and arriving to take over operations of this Inn, we discovered the most curious of things . . . a plaque? A grave stone? A monument? Most certainly we discovered a Mystery at the Inn on Putney Road! A plaque is defined as “an ornamental tablet, typically of metal, porcelain, or wood, that is fixed to a wall or other surface in commemoration of a person or event.” Most assuredly, what we discovered was a plaque. But the only writing on the plaque are the words “Daniel – 1918 – Frederic” and relief profile portraits of two boys that look to be about 6 and 8 years old. Who were Daniel and Frederic? Did they die from the Influenza Pandemic of 1917-1918? Did they die in WW1? Is this plaque even a marker of their death?
