"Duncan Crossing Road Sign"

Eagle Scout Scott Divis"
March 20, 1994
Duncan's Crossing Historical Marker

     On March 20, 1994, a handsome roadside sign was erected on K156 west of Burdett, Kansas directing the public to Duncan's Crossing, a well known site on the Historic Fort Hays/Fort Dodge Road. The installation of the sign was the culmination of an Eagle Service Award project under taken by Scott Divis, Trope 238, Lewis, Kansas. Scott is the son of Mr. & Mrs. Lyle Divis of Lewis; his scout master is Ron Lindberg. Serving as advisor for the project was David Clapsaddle.

     Scott's sign was damaged by someone who shot it with a shotgun, and a couple of members of The Wet/Dry Routes Chapter repaired it. The sign was so badly damaged that the sheet metal on the sign had to be replaced, then repainted. A "Thank You" goes to Jack and Rusti Gardner for the work they did to repair the sign just as it was when Scott did it the first time.
