Stone Markers

In a burst of local pride in 1938, and to reinforce the argument that his town should not be named Carnation, David Entwistle (1879-1960), son of original pioneer James Entwistle, constructed four stone markers to bear the town’s name at entry points along Tolt Avenue. The markers were refurbished in 1992 by the Tolt Historical Society and two can still be seen, one on Blanche Street and one on Bagwell Street along Tolt Avenue.
