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. More details of the celebration can be seen in the article below. The Borough Hall has since become the Topton Borough Mini Museum.
