A rededication of Signal Hill Mound at Wyalusing State Park will commemorate the 100th anniversary of its original dedication in 1911. The program will focus on the original dedication and the legacy of archaeologist Charles E. Brown and ongoing efforts to help preserve mound sites by archaeologists and the Wisconsin DNR. The program is at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, at the site adjacent to Wyalusing State Park’s Green Cloud Picnic Shelter near Bagley.
