Inscription. In recognition of Olean's 200th birthday, we dedicate this prehistoric Olean conglomerate rock. In 1804 Major Adam Hoops bought a large parcel of land at Olean Point and founded our city. We celebrate that occasion and honor all of our citizens and veterans, past and present, who helped make Olean a very special place to live and work. Let the journey continue...
