- COORDINATES: 40.530929, -80.190122 (possible original location)
- COUNTY: Allegheny
- SHAPE: Standard 1-sided
- STATUS: This type of directional marker was once common. This one notes distances to Pittsburgh, Rochester and Ambridge.
At one time almost all “highway” signs were of this keystone shape in cast iron.
It is presumed that this marker once stood at the west end of the Sewickley Bridge.
The previous owner found the marker under a boiler as he was excavating an old barn for a new community park.
As of December 15, 2018 the marker is in possession of the KMT for repainting and installation at another location at a later date.
According to a September 10, 1922 Philadelphia Inquirer news article, the directional markers are painted black, with the back painted black and the front face painted yellow with black letters and border.
