After reading the website sited below, I noticed a disparity in the placement date of the marker. The sign says dedicated in 1976 but the Haddon Twp. Historical Society website says it was placed in 1978. Below is an image of the excerpt.
A photo of the 'Marker' or 'Plaque' is required to identify the location, plus a picture of the 'Historic Site', please ALSO provide a detailed description of your visit so we can form a 'mental image'
