Friends and members of the Knox Historical Society appreciate a pleasant afternoon for the dedication and unveiling of the Palatine Trail historic marker along the Knox-Gallupville Road. Despite the almost 250 years of growth in the area, pointed out in the text of the marker, the Town of Knox retains and enjoys a fairly rural characteristic.
