This is a recently erected historical marker just east of Overton along highway 30. It gives a glimpse into the hard life of the past.
Here are photos of the school, the football field, the Community Center, and the new overpass, which is just under construction as of this writing (Nov. 7, 2005) The overpass will mean you can travel from Interstate 80 over the railroad tracks and over Highway 30 into Overton. No more waiting for long coal trains to pass.
THE BUSIEST TRIPLE MAIN LINE IN AMERICA runs through Overton. An overpass was being constructed as of March 2006, but I don't know when it will be done.
Well over a hundred trains a day come through here.
