1. Marker removed in place of another marker?
A new state historical marker (C-36) was unveiled on 10/21/21 for Dr. Edwin Bancroft Henderson, outside his former home in Falls Church. Apparently this marker was removed to allow placement of the new one. The new one is currently on the HMdb Want List.
