More about this marker. Because of its location in the Sherman Reservation it cannot be reached by car and can only be reached by foot. I would suggest parking your car in the provided parking area on Lightfoot Mill Road and then walking north on the Sherman Reservation footpath that begins near the corner of North Crest Road and Lightfoot Mill Road. The path goes up the slope of the hill, through a wooded area, and emerges on a hill top clearing, where the historic marker is located.
