My next article for Our Towne Bethlehem is about the old Albany and Delaware Turnpike. (You might be sitting in traffic there a lot this summer.) I came across this little article, and it made me smile. Watch out! Mr. Scrafford's horses were on the loose in Normasnville in 1897.
I think "a new Osborne Marker" is some sort of road sign, maybe a mile marker. Google, however, is stumped.
The article is from the June 11, 1897 Altamont Enterprise.
