1. Kerner Tannery Marker
Inscription. 300 yards Northwest of this marker, near the creek branch, stood a tannery begun by John Frederick and Philip Kerner, two sons of Joseph Kerner for who the town was named. During the War between the States (1861-1865) the tannery was operated by Nathaniel and Israel Kerner. It made leather goods, including harnesses, saddles, and shoes, for the Confederacy. The tannery was in existence until circa 1912. Its memory is perpetuated by the street bearing the name Tanyard Lane.
