I Saw The Marker

Marker along highway along Allegheny River, shaded by trees, in very good condition. A pleasant drive between Oil City and Tionesta, the highway crosses over the Allegheny River a couple times on interesting bridges and passes by forest and some farmland. There are several nice rock outcrops as the road climbs to the top of the plateau and then back down to the river.

Maintenance Issues
  1. Is this marker part of a series?
  2. This marker could use another picture or two.
  3. Is the marker in the median?
