Glad to have you join the fun! Hope your surgery goes well on Wednesday.
Yup, there are 700+. Click on the link back in Post #1, and you can read about the history of the markers. There's also a link to a complete list of the original signs and which ones are missing. Over 1,000 were erected, but 30% or so are either moved, torn down, etc. That leaves about 700 or so.
I was surprised, and also ashamed, that I had passed by these signs thousands of times without stopping to find out what they identified. Oh well, better late than never.
Looking forward to your additions to the thread.
