"Swan Pond Marker" on rt. 45

In 1915 a typhoid outbreak killed nearly everyone living near this estate. To prevent spread of the infection, most of the buildings in the area were burned.



That new marker just went up about 2 months ago maybe. My house is only a couple hundred yards from it in Swan Pond. This is also my first post. Hope I can contribute a few markers, too!
