The site commemorates the launching of the world's first successful liquid-fueled rocket on March 16, 1926 at what was then the Asa Ward Farm. Now its the Pakachoag Golf Course. There are actually two monuments at this site. The first is located just to the right of the clubhouse and is the launching site of the rocket. The monument pictured below is the landing site of the rocket on the golf course. The site was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1966.
Visiting this monument was kind of tricky since I don't play golf and didn't have the slightest clue as to how to find the 9th Fairway. So, I just followed this long rock wall and found that it was sitting right in front of me. Very easy to get to. This was one of the more interesting and unique sites I've been to on the list so far. I would never have guessed the world's first successful launching of a liquid-fueled rocket occurred in Massachusetts.
