1. Miller's Landing Marker
Inscription.  From the 1840's until c1912, thousands of county rafts floated billions of board feet of timber to sawmills in Lock Haven, Williamsport and Marietta. A ring rock where rafts moored is still located along the river at the site of Lewis Miller's Hotel (1869-1956). A ferry service ran here in the early 1900's. Across the river the Great Shamokin Indian Path crossed the Moshannon Creek.
 
Erected 2004 by The Clearfield County Bicentennial Committee.
