I was driving through Newport the other day and noticed this marker as I drove by. I had to turn around, go back and read it. It appears to have recently installed. There was a post early on pertaining to Oliver Evans and how there wasn't a marker to commerate his achievements in the Lower Red Clay Valley. Even though he was born in Newport, mills along the Red Clay Creek utilized his invention to automated the flour milling industry. I will also include/update this so it appears in the post of Historical Markers in The Lower Red Clay Valley.
He is buried in
Trinity Church Cemetery and Mausoleum Also known as: Trinity Cemetery, Trinity Cemetery Uptown
