1. Etna Township now a part of Etna - Troy Marker
Inscription. Originally a part of Noble County, it joined Whitley County in 1860. The town of Etna, surveyed by John H. Alexander in 1849, was named by Lafayette Lanson for his former home in Ohio. Due to the layout of the township roads, five school districts were established and maintained until 1904, when they were consolidated and a four-room brick building erected at this site. This was abandoned in 1955, following the union of Etna and Troy townships in 1951, and the school moved to Troy center.
 
Erected 1968 by Whitley County Historical Society.
