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.

I'm still trying to figure out why this one is considered a city marker and the ones directly across the street are roadside. And it's not at Kirby Hall as the PHMC site suggests.
