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.

First Cement marker. Seems to be a bit out of place as it should be just down the road at Saylor Park. See the kilns in the pictures provided.
