Tribute to Figure and Justin Morgan

This is the memorial at the foot of the logging road, actually it was the old road to the farm where Figure died.  It is not located where he died or was "disposed of" as that is private property and the owners didn't want the traffic.  Story has it that Figures body was unceremoniously dumped down a hill to a gully where other animals were similarly disposed of.  You may recall that his true fame, typically, did not come until after his death.


 

 
This road, and the continuation now covered by snow but delineated by the sharp banks, was the final road home for Figure.  Figure would have shouldered his burden along this road as part of a team of six.  The hill and gully where he was cast after his death is to the right of this road.  The monument shown above would be behind you and to your right if you stood where this picture was taken.   There really is a road called Morgan mile and it is what remains of the road where Justin Morgan lived in Randolph and where the real races with Figure took place.

 
This is Justin Morgans grave in Randolph, VT.  His original headstone is said to be at the Morgan Horse Museum.
