This square honors local Bronxite and World War I veteran Cecil F. Hutton. Hutton served as a private in the 105th Infantry and died on July 28, 1918. The tiny triangle of land, bounded by Quarry Road, East 182nd Street and Arthur Avenue, was acquired by condemnation in 1897 and named in Hutton’s memory on May 22, 1940.

Quarry Road takes its name from the rock quarry that was once located on the thoroughfare, and according to local lore, became the cellar of the Lorillard Mansion. The Lorillards were a wealthy Bronx family who made their fortune in tobacco. Legend has it that upon the death of Pierre Lorillard in 1837, an obituary writer coined the term “millionaire” to describe his vast wealth.
