Inscription. The famous Indian Walk of a day and a half from Wrightstown, Bucks County, to near the present Mauch Chunk was performed for the Penn Proprietors of Pennsylvania September 19-20, 1737 by Edward Marsh and his associates who slept at the end of the first day near Hookendauqua Indian town which was 1 ½ miles to the south and the next morning passed near this point. The survey line on the walking purchase was run later in 1737 a half mile east of this marker by Benjamin Eastburn, Surveyor General Pennsylvania.
