More about this marker. Information received from the Allen County Historical Museum states that the marker was placed as part of the Ohio Sesquicentennial marker project. All the markers for this project were made by the Lake Shore Marker Works of Erie, Pennsylvania. Errors in the wordage of the sign caused a delay in the actual erection of the marker until 1954, although the date on the marker says 1953 (the year of the Ohio Sesquicentennial).
