Several years ago Clark P. Thompson of Bangor published the book, Maine's Trotting Horse Heritage Trail. For each subject in the book, Clark placed an inscribed granite monument in an appropriate location. Two years ago the monument was scooped up by a snow bucket and was lost. Last year the Winthrop Historical Society replaced the monument. A Great Thank You to the Winthrop Historical Society for keep a piece a Maine's Trotting Horse History.
Recently I read an article stating that Winthrop Messenger was returned to Dixfield where he died. Just might be more to the story!
