Milford, Pennsylvania: Tom Quick Indian Killer Monument (Gone)

Controversial monument to a man who spent 40 years avenging his father's murder. The obelisk occasionally disappears into storage; a modern plaque explains how sorry everyone is.

I-84 exit 46, then drive east on US 6 two miles into Milford. Turn north on US 209/Broad St. At the north edge of town, turn west onto Sarah St. You'll see the Monument base straight ahead, in the middle of Sarah St.
July 2016: Reported gone.

Tom Quick Indian Killer Monument

You may as well remove this from your list -- it no longer exists. Vandals destroyed the monument in the night last summer and there are no plans to replace it. Yellow mums have been planted where the monument once stood.

[Karl Merchant, 10/05/1998]

The monument was rebuilt and several attempts were made to put it back, but the town repeatedly backed off under criticism. Tom Quick's monument currently stands in a storage shed. His bones are still buried in the traffic island that once held his monument, along with a plaque criticizing the whole thing.
