The Blake Memorial Garden was built by the town to commemorate the life of Thomas Blake, who was a major benefactor to the town, after his death in 1901 and was completed by 1908.
Blake did many things for the Town including saving the Prospect for the Town, contributing a large amount of money for the building of a new Baptist Chapel on Broad Street
and providing a fresh water supply to the town.
