Inscription.
This Gardiner Station Section of the Lincoln Highway also had a rural one room school about .5 mile north east of this location. Currently grain bins occupy the site. The school was established in 1910 and held classes until it was closed in the early 1960s due to consolidation. Demolition occured [sic] in 1966. This concrete section, which was above the door, is all that remains of Platte Co. District 8 or Gardiner School.

This historcal marker site as well as the Gardiner School concrete section were erected and are maintained by Robert and Karen Edmison.
