Summary, etc.:
In 1924, to celebrate the centennial of the founding of Mooresville, Indiana, citizens of the town installed the "founder stone" with a plaque commemorating Samuel Moore, town founder, and the locations of his trading post and dry goods business downtown on the northeast corner of Main and Indiana Streets. In 2017, the plaque and stone were removed during renovations to Paul Hadley mini-park. This booklet relates historical information about the stone, the town founder and his wife, and the stone's original location downtown.
