Grotto built at Camp Myles Standish
This grotto was built by Italian "co-belligerents" at Camp Myles Standish, one of the few remnants of the camp that still remain.

The Myles Standish industrial park in Taunton is big – and busy. Trucks blare past on their way to and from dozens of plants. There’s a hotel, and a National Weather Service station located here. But back in the early 1940s, it was all woods and farmland. And then the war came to Taunton.
