World War I cannon made its return as a fixture on the square in December 2010. Many years ago the cannon was removed by a group of local boys as part of a Halloween prank and was struck by an automobile and damaged. Luther Thomas, a prominent area businessman offered to take the cannon off the county's hands. He then had it restored. For many years the cannon "guarded" the entrance to Old Farm Estates (west Waynesville area), before being rededicated by members of the Thomas family.
