Inscription.  
“Men…with but the thought of gain and gold were dreaming of tracks and trains, of massive walls and wreathing smoke from towering chimneys, while we dreamed of fame and power, of peaceful paths where once was strife, of space and breeze, of floating flags and trees, not smoke and noise. They planned for vandalism we for patriotism. Patriotism wins.” — Edith Darlington Ammon
1899-1909 Regent of the Pittsburgh Chapter NSDAR
1907-1919 President of the Board of Directors of the Fort Pitt Society
