The West Warwick aerie has closed and the monument moved to its current location in Stamford, CT in 2018.

The Eagles Providence monument is one of a few Eagles monuments with enscriptions on the back of the monument. The top portion of the back lists Committee members. The bottom states: “Rededicated Sept. 10, 1980”.
