Idlewild Park in Ligonier is getting marked as a historical spot.  The park was recognized as the longest running amusement park in the state. In 1878 a man added picnic grounds hoping to increase traffic to the area and by 1890 rides were being added to the grounds.  Idlewild survived two wars, The Great Depression and the railroad closure.
