1. A Voice of the Community Marker
Inscription. From atop the schoolhouse, built in 1905, my voice has rung out - beckoning boys and girls to school: clanged out the call for help to fight fires: peeled forth joyous tunes of victory at wars ends: tolled the old year out and rung in the new.

Now I stand silent - dedicated to the memory of all who have served the Dillsboro Community.
