Inscription.  

To create a site for a new post office in 1933, the McConkey House (pictures still on the wall) was moved across the bridge to its current location at 142 East Pine Street. The Post Office was dedicated during the Golden Jubilee, a 50-year celebration of Grove City's incorporation.
—————————————
Grove City celebrated its founding in July 1948. The sesqui-centennial included a beard-growing contest, a parade, a pageant, and the crowning of Miss Grove City, Bonnie Shreffler. The five Nicklin brothers and sisters, with a combined age of 428 years, won the Old Timer's Day contest.

 
Erected by the Borough of Grove City and Friends of Pine Instrument Company.
