1. Old Rock Creek Marker
Inscription. This site, Old Rock Creek, was the transportation center for Southcentral, Idaho from August 1864, when Ben Holladay's stage-coach first arrived here at the stage station, until the completion of the railroad on the north side of the Snake River. Twenty years later, huge freight-wagon trains, pack strings, stagecoaches, and covered wagons stopped at this oasis for supplies and repairs or food and rest before resuming the long, slow journey to their destination.
 
Erected by Grandchildren of Frank P. Harney, 4th Generation Idahoans.
