24 new state historical markers approved

Fighter’s Heaven, the training camp of heavyweight boxing champ Muhammad Ali; Gloria Casarez, a Latinx activist for LGBTQ civil rights; Parker’s Landing petroglyphs, a series of Native American rock engravings at one of the most significant archaeological sites in Pennsylvania; and Sylvania Electric Products, a company that produced proximity fuzes for artillery shells that were instrumental in Allied success during World War II are among the subjects of the 24 new Pennsylvania Historical Markers approved by the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission (PHMC).

The new markers, selected from 48 applications, will be added to the nearly 2,300 familiar blue-with-gold-lettering signs along roads and streets throughout Pennsylvania.
