Jackson Summit
Mansfield, Pa., Aug., 28 - A huge elm tree set squarely in the center of the roadway in a unique feature of the Horseshoe Trail that leads to Mansfield from Elmira, NY., through Tioga County.  The tree, many years old, was deemed too magnificent a specimen to be sacrificed, and as a result the road divides and half the traffic goes one side of the tree and that from the opposite direction passes to the other side.

This old elm tree in Dagget Hollow, Tioga county, stands squarely in the middle of Route 549 near Jobs Corners. A sign on each side of the trunk says, "Keep to the right," and the truck in the picture is about to do so. We generally think of everything having to give way to the Pennsylvania Highway Department. The only similar case I know of is where Route 11 detoured around the Wilson College Campus in the edge of Chambersburg instead of going straight through. If some one will send in the story about this elm, and how it split a state highway, readers would doubtless be interested. Was it due to local pressure to save the tree? Did the Highway Department put beauty ahead of utility? Or was it simply less trouble to build past on each side than to cut the tree down and take out the stump? Elms are pretty tough. - J.B.R.D. 

This life of this tree ended probably in the 1970s or thereabouts. In this picture the road appears not to be even paved. The tree stood there between the lanes long after the road was paved. It was a famous landmark for a very long time.
