Paoli Massacre Site


Originally a directional sign from another location, this sign was re-purposed by an unknown source to commemorate the site of the Paoli Massacre, a 1777 Revolutionary War incident.

The directional text was smoothed out on the sign to create a space for the new message. The top line of directional text is not legible, but the bottom line is barely, reading “Norristown – 10”.
