​​​​​​​​New Wayside Historical Markers


The Camp Curtin Historical Society dedicated five new wayside historical markers in Cumberland County on Saturday, June 13, 2015. The markers were funded by a grant from the Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau, with additional major donations from the Historical Society of Camp Hill, Capital Area Genealogical Society, and Hampden Township Veterans Recognition Committee. These markers are part of a continuing effort to bring our local Civil War history to life and stimulate tourism.
