Roadside Markers to be unveiled
The Freeport Historical Society in collaboration with the Freeport Landmarks Preservation Commission were able to apply for a grant from the Pomeroy Foundation to secure roadside markers. The Pomeroy Foundation “strongly believes that historic markers play an important role in local historic preservation by serving a dual purpose. They educate the public and foster historic tourism, which in turn can provide much needed economic benefits to the towns and villages where the markers are placed.”
Two additional markers will be unveiled in August 2017 that reflects the wonderful history of Freeport. The markers are for the site of Col. James Dean’s home and the Woodcleft Inn.
