Additional comments.
1. Location of the Log College / Homesite
The location of the stone foundation shown in the photo here is inconsistent with the location describe in this marker. The park sign says it is the location. There is also another marker on the eastern edge of the park that says the marker is "100 yards west". So, the evidence and the extant foundation suggest the text of this marker is incorrect.
