POINT MARION RESIDENTS AND FORMER PMHS STUDENTS
SUPPORT HISTORIC HONOR ROLL PROJECT
A campaign to preserve the Schoolhouse Hill Honor Roll is moving forward with a
combined effort from those living in Point Marion and others who grew up in the
local area. The Historic Point Marion Honor Roll was dedicated on July 2, 1944,
and displays the names of 277 veterans who served in World War II. It is located
on the corner of Union and Ontario Streets across from Point Manor Personal
Point Marion resident Dewey Stillwagon was selected by the Historic Point
Marion Honor Roll Committee to do the restoration work on the stone
memorial. Bob Hubeaut and Chipper O’Neil will create all new wooden
nameplates and shields.
$6,000 is needed to repair the Historic Point Marion Honor Roll. In March 150
letters asking for support were mailed to former residents. Donations large and
small have been received from across the country. Many donors have
recognized family names or neighbors on the honor roll. Others just fondly
remember Point Marion.
In early February members of VFW Post #747 stepped forward to back the
Historic Point Marion Honor Roll project. We hope you, too, will choose to
preserve history, recognize our veterans, and support your community by
making a donation. Please make your check payable to Rotary/Honor Roll
Project, PO Box 157, Point Marion, PA 15474. For more information, email
or call 304-376-3690.
