Historic Marker in Yorkshire

For this Historic Marker there is a pull off for cars.  Read and learn a little about the area.  One of the earliest settlers was Joseph Pierce, originally from Vermont, who established a small distillery in 1819.  Often times Joseph would barter with others instead of accepting cash.  The going rate was six quarts of whiskey for a bushel of grain (rye or corn).
