Washington Park was dedicated on July 4, 1887, in honor of General George Washington, the First President of the United States.  It would not have come into being, however, were it not for the perseverance of Chelsea's Pratt family. In 1885, Caleb's son, Hermon, was elected to the Common Council. He made the proposal for a third time to have the park created and he succeeded. Mr. Pratt personally and tenaciously solicited subscriptions from Chelsea residents to collect the impressive sums of money necessary for building the stone wall (1885-1886) and planting 250 trees (1887).
