More about this marker.
1. Fort Wayne Marker in Oklahoma
In 1995 a granite marker replaced the earlier style Oklahoma highway marker on Fort Wayne; the granite marker had the same text as the original highway marker. The granite marker was damaged sometime before 2008 and removed. It was later repaired and re-installed at its original location on State Highway 20 in Oklahoma, approximately five miles from the Maysville marker. The Fort Wayne marker in Oklahoma is located around four miles north of the site of Fort Wayne.
