A simple marker in Gallagher Park commemorates the life and work of Alice E. Gallagher (1883-1940), a Brighton resident noted for her many acts of community service and private kindness.

The marker was erected by the City of Boston in 1941 and the dedication speech was given personally by Mayor Maurice Tobin.
