The commission announced selections March 14 that also include the Bethel Burying Ground, an African-American cemetery established in 1810 in Philadelphia.

The markers were selected from a group of 55 nominees and will be added to about 2,300 that have previously been installed along the state's roadways .

Other newly approved subjects and topics include an Olympian from Washington County, an abolitionist from Warren County, a pioneering transplant surgeon and the state's first home for veterans.
