Markleville’s Muterspaugh Drive made official


MARKLEVILLE — In a ceremony on Saturday, Markleville unveiled its newly named street, Muterspaugh Drive.
In August, Markleville Town Council approved changing Tariff Street to Muterspaugh Drive, in honor of beloved resident Charles “Chod” Muterspaugh, who passed away in November 2020 at age 82.

Muterspaugh was a volunteer fireman with Adams Markleville Fire Department for 54 years.
He worked at Elston Richards Warehouse for 17 years and was a custodian at Pendleton Heights High School for 21 years. He was also a custodian for town hall and a member of the parks department.
The town began the process of changing the street name earlier this year. There is only one home on the street, and it is owned by Muterspaugh’s daughter, Betty Muterspaugh.
