Located on Rt 219/55, just 1/10 mile north of junction with Rt 66.

I'm not the historian, so for more information on Gen. Robert E. Lee:

[Edit 04 April 2010 - Marker has been refurbished - see below]




Historical Marker located on Rt 219/55 just north of junction with Rt 66 at Snowshoe. (Looks like this sign has led a rough life and could use some TLC)





Side #2 of the same marker.





This is the best shot I could get of the knoll, as the sun was low, directly over the top of the hill.





View northbound on Rt 219/55. Elkins: 43 miles ahead.

Lots of nice riding in this area.


[Edit - Update: I rode by here on 18 March 2010 and the marker has been refurbished. Here are a couple of photos. This is proof our efforts are paying off. Thanks!!!]









Big difference, eh!
