Inscription.  

Founded in 1908, The Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science and Art was erected to house the collections of Dr. Isaiah Fawkes Everhart, an amateur ornithologist, skilled taxidermist and avid naturalist who assembled one of the finest collections of mounted specimens in the United States. In planning his museum, Dr. Everhart envisioned "three buildings forming three sides of a square, one for natural history, one for science and one for art." Today, with its central hall and adjoining wings, added in 1928, the Everhart Museum strives to meet the goals of its founder by presenting exhibitions and educational programs on natural history, science and the arts.
 
Erected by Everhart Museum.
