In the September 2016 issue, QVNA Magazine began a series of stories on the 11 Pennsylvania Historical Markers currently placed within the boundaries of Queen Village. Our goal was to:

  1. Focus on the subjects of these markers
  2. Shed light on what made them noteworthy
  3. Make the people and places worthy of these honors come alive to our residents

We hope we have accomplished this for you.

Moving Forward: Maybe, one day in the future, we will have markers for South Fourth Street and Fabric Row, too. That is going to require some fundraising to be able to afford the markers, which cost about $975 for city versions. Highway markers run $1625.

Note: plaques for Francis Daniel Pastorius and Charles Willson Peale are missing.
