Lindley Murray Historical Marker in Annville, Lebanon County

Over the past 10 years we've been following the Pennsylvania Historical Marker Trail all through our great state and documenting them here on the blog. Millions of people walk or drive by these markers every year and never give them a second thought. They're a great source of historic information and we're trying to bring some much needed attention to them.

While following the Historical Marker Trail through Lebanon County we came across the Lindley Murray historical marker in Annville, Pennsylvania. It's within 1 1/2 miles from Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. If you're going to visit the cemetery, you'll find it located right down the road. Here's the information imprinted on the marker.
