Inscription.  A descendant of William G. Waring, who was among the first to settle in Tyrone. His heritage and those experiences he enjoyed here as a "Boy Scout" provided him with the vision, talent, and professionalism which established him as a renowned musical conductor, teacher, and innovator.

The "First" Pennsylvanians' Orchestra was formed by Tom Waring, Poley McClintock, Freddie Buck, and Fred—all Tyrone boys—and their fame spread throughout the world.

About Fred is has been said: "He has been reorganized as
The man who taught America how to sing."

Dedicated October 4, 1983, to affirm the high esteem with which this community regards Fred Waring.
