Center Point Knob was the original half way point of the Appalachian Trail when the Trail was first completed in 1937. The plaque pictured here commemorates that fact. The halfway point is now approximately 15 miles south, just south of Pine Grove Furnace State Park, the home of the Appalachian Trail Museum.
