Blossburg (Historic Marker)


At Main Street Bridge
Blossburg, PA

This is a Keystone shaped marker on a front mount pole, but it is not a town marker.  Text says: “Peters Camp Now BLOSSBURG Coal Discovered 1792 By Patterson Brothers Noted Indian Scouts.” www.blossburg.org/history/

Marker was moved. Originally located at the south end of South Williamson Road at Gulick and Main St. (see postcard image).
