barrydancer,

Three years ago the park replaced 12 position markers that have been missing from the park for many years. Another dozen are currently being manufactured. It is a time consuming process as the new signs are required to look identical to the cast iron signs from the early 1900's. If at all possible the signs which are damaged are repaired by the park staff. Since all of the original signs are over 100 years old they are considered cultural resources themselves. The park is also working with the Tennessee Department of Transportation to construct pull-overs on HIghway 22 south of the park, to allow visitors to safely pull over and read these signs without the danger of being run over.
