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.

She may have been a Secretary of State, but she hit a very sour note with rappers! Ms. Tucker dedicated much of the last few years of her life to removing sexually explicit lyrics from rap and hip-hop tracks.
