More about this marker. The road this marker is on is slated to be closed. Construction on the new road has already begun. Longwood Gardens already owns the property on both sides of this road. When the new road is complete this marker may only be accessible by foot. I have tried to contact a friend at the Historical Society to learn if the marker will be relocated.
 
Regarding Indian Hannah Birthplace. Road Now CLOSED: Access to this marker is now limited. As of early 2012 the new Route #52 is a ½ mile or so east of this marker.

RELOCATION: This marker has now been relocated as of (April 2014) sprinklers were running on the new sod and landscaping when I took the new images.
