Description:
Roadside historic markers are our windows to the past. They educate us, they make us curious to investigate, or they provide a nice excuse to take a break and stretch our legs while we read what happened here. Pennsylvania's historic marker program is a great way to learn the history of the Keystone State! See waymark creation and logging requirements below.

Believe it was on a restricted road near rail tracks so be sure to use caution. Caution apparently isn't cared about with the safety of the Elizabeth marker nearby neither.
