Inscription.  Situated on the site of the former historic City Hotel, this park was made possible through a generous gift from Charles Philip Judge to his beloved "adopted hometown", Tyrone. The City Hotel Courtyard will serve as a memorial to the first settlers in this valley in the early 1800's. Their courage served as a beacon to all those who followed and shared in the dream of settling here, in the foothills of the beautiful Alleghenies, in what would become known as the borough of Tyrone.
