          Heyworth Mason Interpretive Signs                                                    

    
Heyworth/Mason Park has a long and interesting history that is now documented and displayed for the public. Volunteers have developed eight interpretive signs that have been installed in the park. 
These signs are intended to be of interest to students, especially fourth graders who will be touring the site as part of their study of New York history. The images on the signs have the biggest impact and the word count is limited to 300. The signs are 3 feet wide by 2 feet high.

Sign design is by Maja Smith, funded through the Lake Champlain Basin Program’s Wayside Exhibit Program.
