Topton Mini-Museum Moon Tree
The sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) Moon Tree was planted in front of the Borough Hall in Topton, Pennsylvania
on 20 June 1976. It was planted as part of the town's centennial celebration by
Mayor James Schauer and District Forester Patrick Lantz (picture upper right). More details of the celebration
can be seen in the article below. The Borough Hall has since become the
Topton Borough Mini Museum.
The picture at the top of the page shows the tree circa October 2015.
