description/mission statement:
Almost every city, town, village, river, creek, and trail in Pennsylvania was once graced by one or more of these elegant blue and gold cast iron, keystone shaped markers. Installed as part of the Good Roads movement at the turn of the last century, a few remarkable survivors remain. NOTE: THESE MARKERS ARE DIFFERENT THAN THE PENNSYLVANIA HISTORICAL AND MUSEUM COMMISSION MARKERS USED TO DENOTE HISTORIC SITES. The Keystone Marker Trust is actively collecting information about the remaining markers and is hoping Waymarkers will help us update our database with latitude/longitude, condition information, and photos for these unexpected treasures of the highway. See www.keystonemarkertrust.org for the database and photos of what to look for. Note that many towns had multiple markers, one at each entrance. Each marker for a town was unique, as it bore information about the distance to the next town. Generally, each marker bears the distance to the next town, the town name, a phrase as to the significance of the town name, and the date the town was founded. Variations of the distinctive keystone-shaped markers were used for rivers, creeks, trails, and borough lines. See www.keystonemarkertrust.org for photos and history. For more information, please email ncg1@cornell.edu.
