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.

What an incredible structure!! Talk about stumbling upon a marker. Unless you stop to look for a place to "park," you would never think of stopping here. This marker is in bad shape. I'd like to come back with a welder.
