Inscription.  This tree is believed to have been planted in 1912 when the railroad station was built. Local residents remember the days when its limbs were so long that they nearly touched the ground. A cannon sat next to this tree prior to World War II but this relic was donated to the scrap-drive like so many other things in town.
