The Historical Preservation Society of Upper Township is proud to sponsor a new sign for the infamous Shoemaker Holly Tree located at the John Townsend Rest Stop on mile marker 23 of the Garden State Parkway. This dedication was part of the year-long celebration of the 350th Anniversary of the State of New Jersey. The historic landmark located in Upper Township is the oldest tree of its kind in the state and possibly in the nation.
The installation and dedication of the sign took place on Tuesday, December 16, 2014 at 1:00 PM.
The sign was donated by local businessman Mr. Tom Tower and produced by Advantage Signs under the direction of Erik Statzell.
