              Four more historical interpretive panels were added at various sites around DuBois this summer. It is part of a continuing program by the DuBois Area Historical Society to present the history of DuBois to the public.

            The four new panels feature the DuBois Area Historical Society, located outside the E. D. Reitz Museum at 28 West Long Ave., and sponsored by the DuBois Area Historical Society; the “Founders of DuBois” located at the parking lot near Luigi’s Ristorante and sponsored by Downtown DuBois Inc., Clearfield County Charitable Foundation and Visit Clearfield County; the story of the Gray Foundation Apartments, in front of the Gray Foundation Apartments, sponsored by the Gray Family Foundation and the DuBois Area Historical Society; and the Van Tassel Tannery history, near Juniata Lake and sponsored by the Pennsylvania Department of Communication and Natural Resources and the Lumber Heritage Region. These join a panel concerning John DuBois’ lumber mill erected in the DuBois City Park in 2021.

            The interpretive panel project is ongoing. Eight more are in the planning stage for the City of DuBois at this time. The City of DuBois is handling the installation of all the panels.

            Sponsors are needed to help defray the cost of producing the panels. Any business or individual interested in sponsoring a panel or installing one at a specific location may contact the DuBois Area Historical Society at 814-371-9006.
