Needs cleaning and repaint. Also appears to have a loose connection to the mounting post. Grassy area under and around sign was mowed today but has often been overgrown. I'll check with the historical society about getting it fixed up.

  2. My earlier comment was about the Meade Headquarters marker NE of Taneytown. I accidentally dropped. It here.
