Newmarket is an industrial town where the city is home to thousands of manufacturing workers, who all remember a great man who once built the iconic factory where the Queen once held court.
But Newmarket Memorial Hall, built in the late 19th century and the site of the first-ever Remembrance Parade in 1911, is being demolished.
It will become the home of the Newmarket Chamber of Commerce.
The former site of Newmarket City Hall has been used as the site for many memorials, such as the Newbury Street Church of England and St James Cathedral.
But this week, a group of people will be taking the city’s most iconic structure down.
On Memorial Day, the New Markets Chamber of Industry, the chamber’s executive director, says he is calling on people to stop visiting and to instead focus on the “great and enduring significance of New Markets” and its many community projects.
The group has been pushing the city for a new memorial for many years.
The city has not announced when it will take the building down.
But its chairman, Kevin Macleod, said the chamber is now calling for “peaceful protest”.
“This is not about the future, it’s about the past.
It’s about our heritage,” Mr Macleood said.
“It’s been a real sad time, and I don’t think that’s going to change any time soon.” “
The chamber is currently considering a bid to have a memorial dedicated to Newmarket’s first Lord Mountbatten, a wealthy English merchant who was a philanthropist and philanthropist. “

In 1790, Lord Mountcrest paid a visit to Newmarkets City Hall.
In his absence, Newmarket became one of the wealthiest towns in the country.
Mr Maclleod said the building was a symbol of New Britain’s “golden age”.
“Newmarkets was a thriving community, built on its own land and with its own history,” he said.
In 1919, the first Remembrance Parades were held in the city.
They were attended by hundreds of Newlands residents and locals.
The event was so successful that the town council moved its Remembrance Celebration, which was held at Newmarket Town Hall, to the nearby Memorial Hall.
This year, the city will host another parade at the site, with the main event being held on Memorial Day.
The council said it wanted to honour the “unique legacy of Newmarkets” and “the city’s rich history”.
“The building will be transformed into a vibrant community gathering place,” Mr Mcleod added.
The chamber’s chief executive, Tim Williams, said he was disappointed the chamber had not received the backing of the council for its request.
“The city has been trying to have it demolished for so long and it’s been in limbo,” Mr Williams said.
Newmarket mayor and Chamber of Business chief executive Mark Wylie said the group had been “grateful” to the city council for the support.
“When we received the letter of support from the council, we said it was an absolute no-brainer,” Mr Wylis said.
The building will remain in place, but will be demolished in 2020 to make way for the proposed Newmarket Tower, which is due to be built next year.
“I’m really pleased the chamber has made its decision,” Mr West said.
A new Memorial Hall will be built to commemorate the centenary of New York City’s first Remembers parade.
Mr Wysylis believes the building’s history and the role of New London in New Britain will be preserved, along with the community’s “great legacy”.
“I think the building will continue to be an iconic part of Newbrook,” he added.
“Hopefully, when it’s done, the people of Newbury will look back at the history of New Brook with pride.”
The group said it would be asking for around $15 million for the rebuilding of the building.
The memorial will be closed on Monday, May 1, 2019, but a permanent memorial will remain on the site until 2021.
It is believed the building could be reopened in 2020, although the city has yet to confirm when.
