Threats:
Threats Details: 

The high level of traffic on Orange Center Road could pose some threat to the green, if the Department of Transportation should decide to widen the road. The local Historic and National Register Districts might provide some small protection against this, but the protection would not be certain. The green itself is rather cluttered and over-landscaped. Moving the two monuments beside the flagpole or else together somewhere on the edge of the green and removing the evergreen trees would reduce the clutter. A row of shade trees along Orange Center Road would Enhance the green's historic character.
