Inscription
Near Pilot, two and one-half miles northwest of this point, lies the site of a Susquehanna fording used by Indians before the coming of the white man. By 1695, a barge provided ferry service to the colonists. The Conowingo Lake now covers the site.

On April 12, 1781, Lafayette moved his troops south by way of this ford, followed by Rochambeau's Artillery and baggage detachments on September 10 of the same year.
