Long Description:
The house and marker are across the street from the Oak Ridge Rehabiliation and Nursing Home. There is parking available at the nursing home. The road is narrow with little room on the shoulder for parking.

I have driven by this sign many times over the years and did not notice it. The sign itself is in bad shape with many of the letters faded. There was a branch from a tree on the property growing though the gap in the sign. I moved it to take the photos.
