  • Official USGS Description:

    Glenwood, 1.0 mi NE. of;, along rd. to Lenoxville; 135 ft S. of junction of rd. S. to Fleetville; in top of NW. abutment of 90-ft bridge over East Branch of Tunkhannock Creek; standard tablet stamped "24 ETL 1942"

I thought this would be a straightforward find, especially when I saw a USGS disk on the northwest abutment of the bridge as we drove by. But the disk currently set on the bridge is not stamped 24 ETL; it's in fact stamped only "RESET 1950." I assume that it is a reset of 24 ETL, but I can't be certain. I'll mark 24 ETL as Not Found, probably replaced by "RESET 1950."
