New Rough and Tumble Sign
14 Photos

In 2003, Rough and Tumble's Board made the decision to replace the badly worn billboard sign that faces westbound traffic on Route 30. This often the first impression visitors headed our way get of Rough and Tumble. The sign is not only new, and painted on metal panels, but it is also a new design.
