1. The Rivers' Edge Marker
Inscription. On June 7, 1997, this park was dedicated to the memory of William I. Maxwell. His love for and commitment to the Saltsburg community, combined with his love for the river, make the Rivers' Edge park a fitting tribute that the community and its visitors can enjoy for years to come. A Navy Veteran and successful business leader, he was also a dedicated husband, father, grandfather and friend who spent his career giving back to members of the community. This living memorial overlooking the tranquil Conemaugh River was constructed by the employees of Max Construction in memory of its founder, William I. Maxwell, as a gift to the people of the community he proudly called "home".
 
Erected by Max Construction Company, Saltsburg Borough, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
