1. Local Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Markers
There are two DAR markers between Moluntha Town and the Manary Blockhouse. They are bronze plaques on boulders. The first is at the old Bellefontaine Country Club, now called Liberty Hills Golf Course. The second is at Logan Acres (the Logan County Home), it has been moved when the new facility was built. Also, at the Logan Acres site is the grave of Col. McPherson. Another marker, "Bokengehalis town" was nearby, but has been damaged. A third boulder was at the old Logan County Children's Home, but it has been lost.
