1. Roland Forrest Seitz Marker
Inscription.

This plaque is placed here to honor the life and works of Roland F. Seitz who graduated from Dana's Musical Institute in 1898 and returned to Glen Rock to spend his time in the field of music. He was a teacher, organist, band director, publisher and composer of many outstanding marches including Grandioso and Salutation. This building served as his home and studio from 1907 to 1944.

The vigor of his work and the force of his genius will live on for generations. Mr. Seitz was truly an outstanding Pennsylvanian and a great American who forged a proud tradition for Glen Rock and the Seitz family.
