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.

Now it's called East Stroudsburg. Guess the Strouds had more clout.

This marker has been "in the works" for quite some time. The man who began it died, and it took a while for someone to pick up the pieces and complete it.

This was listed as missing on the PA historical marker website. I've since emailed them with the pictures to prove it's still there.

The PHMC website indicates that this one is missing. I beg to differ. I sent them an email with the proof. And this is a brand new one posted (2000)

I must say that I am shocked that I didn't post this before. I have driven by it so many times thinking that I already had. This is just BARELY in Monroe County. I haven't been able to find the one listed in Pike county (Listed as missing on PHMC.)

I doubt Heller's Tavern is still there. I would like to believe the historical society would place the marker next to it, if it was still in existence.
