Sybil Ludington was definitely brave, and only 16 years old! Free parking behind the library.

My 7 year old thought it was pretty cool. The town was lovely. Check out the Museum of the Streets plaques throughout.

It's a nice little area, the statue, and a water feature where the old city hall was. The only cost may be for a parking meter.
