The original historic marker mysteriously disappeared from its site several years ago. Since then, the LCHS Historic Sites Committee has diligently worked to raise funds to replace the original marker.

The Western Reserve Harbor Marker denotes a crucial part of Pennsylvania’s 19th Century Canal System. The canal itself stretched from Presque Isle Bay in Erie to the Ohio River in Beaver and was a vital link between the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico.

The Rededication Ceremony will take place on May 13, 2024, beginning at 5:00 PM and will feature remarks from Emcee Dr. Robert Waddington, LCHS Board President David J. Dean, historical background by Ronald HalacknaIn, and comments from several Public Officials.

In anticipation of possible inclement weather, the actual ceremony will be held at the New Castle School of Trades, US 422, 4117 Pulaski Road, New Castle PA 16101.

This event is free to the public and all are encouraged to attend.
