Silver Lake and glaciers... Really?

By John Witmer | Sep 04, 2014

Silver Lake certainly is a community treasure. But when the new historic designation marker states that Silver Lake is a remnant of receding glaciers from the last Ice Age, I question the process.

The glaciers from the Pleistocene Ice Age advanced no farther south than what now is central Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey, so they did not form Silver Lake. It is fine that SOLA3 has installed the plaque, but I would hope that a responsible entity would vet the text for accuracy.
