Lincoln Highway marker hit, missing from York

LHA director Mindy Crawford alerts us that the concrete Lincoln Highway marker  at Ogontz and E. Market Street in York, Pennsylvania, was hit by a car on February 23. “One of our members has been trying to track down where it went. The only information he could get was from the police and the water company who both said it was laying there when they left! It is, of course, gone now.”
