Clarkstown Sign Restored
August 8, 2012
It was more like a family reunion than a photo op, as longtime friends gathered today in Clarkstown to appreciate a long-since damaged roadside sign that proclaims the small town's history.
According to Oliver Sones, nearly 25 years ago, the sign had been damaged by a truck, severed in half and discarded to a scrap metal pile. Sones, a collector by nature and proprietor of the Sones Farm & Home Museum in Muncy Creek Township, bought the sign for one dollar when he learned it was going to be scrapped, and eventually had the sign restored. J. R. Opp welded the sign together, and Lycoming County District Magistrate Jim Carn repainted it, bringing it back to life.
