Long Description:
The text on the marker reads "Famous symbol of frontier heroism. A victim of an Indian raid in 1697, on Haverhill, Massachusetts, whence she had been taken to a camp site on the nearby island in the river. After killing and later scalping ten Indians, she and two other captives, Mary Neff and Samuel Lennardeen, escaped down the river to safety."

Just a short walk from the parking area near the sign is a monument dedicated to Hannah Dustin. It stands on the actual island where she was taken and can be reached easily by crossing a footbridge adjacent to the nearby railroad tracks.
