CHESTER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA, 1874 - As James Wesley drove his team westward, his passengers counted the mile markers along Old Lancaster Pike. The light snow that had accompanied them since Paoli was now beginning to drift, and travel was becoming difficult. Squinting his eyes to the weather, James spotted, off in the distance, the light he had longed to see. He announced to the others that "the sign of the Ship" is near. Although they could not all read, they all knew about "the sign of the Ship." It had been there since the Inn was built in 1796. It meant comfort, warmth, arid a place to rest. As the coach drew near, another image came into view. It was the tiny cross placed high upon the newly built church across from the tavern. For some weary travelers, the cross was a mystery that somehow represented peace and rest. But to countless others, it was a welcomed reminder of enduring hope and their personal faith. "Crossroads" by Richard Bollinger captures this historic landmark as it appears today on US Route 30 in Exton, Pennsylvania.
