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.

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.

I was surprised to find this one so close to the other Carbondale marker. Again, this should be listed as a city marker, not a roadside.

This should be labeled as a city marker since it's right next to the downtown area. Maybe it was moved since first presented.

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.
