Inscription.

Left panel:

The Pinches Stable was located here during the late eighteen-hundreds. During that time horses were the key element for travel and people passing through town boarded them here.

Right panel:

Laytonville's first church was built here in the 1860's. Before this church, services were held at private homes or schools. The Laytonville Baptist Church was sometimes used as a courthouse. Passing ministers would hold sermons here, but since it was not regularly put to use, it was to become a place to play for the children in the 1920s. It was eventually torn down because of its discontinued use. The bell can be found on display in the Babcock Bell Collection in Willits
