The Lady Knox Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution announced that the Revolutionary Lookout sign above Route 1 in Glen Cove that was damaged in a storm last December has been replaced with a new sign.

The new sign, created by Adventure Advertising in Rockport, restores the text of the 1921 sign with minor changes. The sign honors Midcoast colonists and members of the Penobscot Nation for their efforts to defend the coast against British forces during the American Revolution.

The original sign was erected in 1921 by the Rockland Chapter Sons of the
American Revolution. In 1976, the Glen Cove Garden Club renovated the sign and in 1998 the Lady Knox Chapter took over restoration and care of the sign.

“We were pleased to be able to help with this interesting and historic project.” said Joe Ryan at Adventure Advertising, in a press release. “It’s important to us to help preserve the history of our community, and we’re proud to have been included in the restoration.”

A formal re-dedication of the sign is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 23. For more information about the sign and the re-dedication, contact Helen Shaw, 236-2468.
