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 “ghosts” of the original lettering can still be seen.  The top line of directional text is not legible, but the bottom line is barely, reading “Norristown – 10”.
