Potter County Historical Society and local professional photographer Curt Weinhold continue work on a project to spotlight many of the historic sites in the county. It will consist of a guidebook and signs at each site to explain its significance. Communities will be asked to identify historic buildings, cemeteries and other landmarks.
Historical Society president David Castano said the registry and an accompanying map would be distributed at lodging establishments, government offices and businesses. Approximately 50 sites throughout the county have been tabbed for inclusion so far. Details will be posted on the Potter County Historical Society and Potter County Visitors Association websites. The organizers hope to begin posting signs on historic sites later this year.
