A fair way east of Highway 31 (Bank Street) on Morewood Road north of Winchester stands the small town of Morewood. Morewood Road becomes Main Street in Morewood. On the north side of Main Street where Moffat Street to the south becomes Mill Street stands the Morewood War Memorial in a very fine well maintained condition.
