The monument was dedicated October 6, 1937 by the Thomas Lloyd Memorial Association, an organization mainly consisting of Lloyd descendents and state/local history buffs.

Its inscription reads:

THOMAS LLOYD / COMMUNITY LEADER, LEGISLATOR / SOLDIER, TOWN BUILDER / BORN IN PENNSYLVANIA ABOUT 1736 / SERVED IN VIRGINIA PROVINCIAL / FORCES AGAINST INDIANS / VESTRYMAN OF THE PARISH, CHURCH WARDEN / CHAIRMAN COUNTY COURT / MAJOR, ORANGE COUNTY MILITIA / MEMBER, NORTH CAROLINA ASSEMBLY 1760 - 1766 / INSTRUMENTAL IN ESTABLISHING HILLSBORO / AS A BOROUGH TOWN / MAJOR GENERAL IN COLONIAL ARMY 1768 / DIED IN 1792
 
ERECTED BY THOMAS LLOYD MEMORIAL ASSOCATION / ON OCT. 6, 1937 / J. R. LLOYD, PRES. / J. T. LLOYD, VICE-PRES / HERBERT LLOYD, SEC. / P. O. LLOYD, TREASURER / HISTORIANS / EUGENE S. SUGG / P. CLEVELAND GARDNER / MRS T. W. LLOYD / LUECO LLOYD / ARCHIBALD HENDERSON
 
(NOTE: The inscription contains inaccuracies; it includes information about a different Thomas Lloyd, who was from New Hanover County, NC.)
 
There is a pamphlet that was printed regarding the monument's erection and dedication, but alas I can not find a copy (is it the 1941 version? I don't know).
