A tribute to the Armed Forces that have defended the United States of America.

Following World War II, the National Council of State Garden Clubs designated certain national roads as "Blue Star Memorial Highway", as a living memorial to "all those who have served or will serve in the nation's armed forces," through planting aisles of flowering trees and shrubs. The Pennsylvania Turnpike from Carlisle to Irwin was so designated as part of the first transcontinental Blue Star Highway and our plantings of flowering Dogwood trees are evident along this segment of the Turnpike.
