1. Pioneer Family Marker
Inscription.  This pioneer family, created for the bicentennial, 1976, represents the basic fundamentals of our American life — courage — faith in God — education — love of family and liberty.

These qualities in our American pioneers won for them a land of promise and opportunity, and for us, a nation of freedom and stability,

may this be an inspiration to all.
—W. Walter Campbell
 
Erected 1976 by Rotary Club of Hollidaysburg.
