More about this marker. Because of the location of the historic marker being situated in the midst of a number of leafy, moderately sized trees lining the road, and the dark color of the historic marker, and the darkness of the metal pole that it is affixed to, it is easy to completely miss seeing this particular historic marker. Especially if it is during the time of day when this marker is covered (and concealed) by the shadows cast by the neighboring trees.
