Historical Markers and Signage

Everybody has seen them driving around the area, but do you actually stop and read them? Most commonly you see the blue and gold signs, with a quick paragraph about the area in the general proximity of the marker. They’re easy enough to read if you’re stopped at a light or riding as a passenger, but some are off the main roads. We don’t have too many here in Putnam Valley (some of the photos below are of the same sign from different angles or a closer position) but we want to know – where else do you think is deserving of a marker? There’s been an increase in interest of the old driving tours of Putnam Valley, and we’ve recently decided to take another look at revamping/reorganizing the tours into a more complete look at the town. A perfect socially distancing way of spending an afternoon – and this is definitely a more down the road (haha!) project but we’ll be asking for volunteers to help pull it together, so keep an eye out here and on Facebook for more information!

  1. Are there any plans to erect a sign near the location of the Wood St Cemetery? No headstones are visable, however, Revolutionary soldiers were buried there. It would be a shame if they were forgotten. Thank you for reading my comment. Sincerely, Cathleen Romanych
