Inscription.

John Dougherty, a wealthy landowner and Indian agent, stands before his Little Dixie plantation, Multnomah. Dougherty witnessed the area's early history unfold between his birth in 1791 and his death in 1860. As depicted in these ceramic murals, Dougherty saw fur traders and hunters arrive to trade with the Indians; the migration of settlers from Kentucky, Tennessee and the Carolinas; the building of roadways, towns, governments, railroads, bridges, homes and churches; and the expansion of commerce on land and river.
