York New Salem Marker To Be Refurbished

Too many of these almost century-old bits of “history in cast iron” stand neglected and forgotten, some still on the roadside, and many that languish in the deep dark corner of a Boro or Township maintenance shed.  But a growing number of towns where one or more still remain are taking a renewed interest in caring for them.  The Keystone Marker Trust (KMT) stands ready to provide assistance and advice.  KMT volunteers have repaired and repainted dozens of them across the Commonwealth, but it is essential that “local” volunteers or town staff step up and adopt them.   The town of York New Salem, in York County (where else?) have recently reached out to KMT for assistance.  So keep your eyes out – hopfully one day soon this sign will once again look like new.
