1. Concrete Bunker Marker
Inscription. This monument stone sits on a 10’ deep concrete bunker that was discovered during construction, together with portions of an abandoned railroad track. The bunker was used to store coal for the furnaces in the large buildings which once stood on the site. The coal was conveyed by use of a metal augur which is still in place at the rear of the bunker.
