New Historical River Signage in Millersburg

August 2015

The last operating ferry boats across the Susquehanna River have a new way to tell their unique stories thanks to new interpretive signage at the Ferry Landing in Riverfront Park, Millersburg, PA.

The Millersburg Borough and the Millersburg Ferry Boat Association partnered with the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership to make the project possible. 

The sign includes extensive historical information about the ferries as well as a panel to display community announcements about the ferry boats. The project used the Susquehanna Greenway Sign Design Guidelines available for many projects along the Susquehanna River and Greenway.

Historical photos for the sign were provided by the Historical Society of Millersburg and Upper
Paxton Township
.The sign and text were designed and written by Borough Council president Chris Dietz. Pannier Graphics of Gibsonia, PA manufactured the sign and it was installed by RET Associates of Millersburg. 

This project was financed in part by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program, the Keystone Fund, under the administration of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation.

This project was awarded through the Susquehanna Greenway Mini-Grant Program. Local funding for the project came from the Millersburg Borough capital improvement fund and from the Millersburg Ferry Boat Association.
