Inscription.  Site of the home of Peter and Wilhelmina Rasmussen from 1914 until 1937. Peter came to America from Denmark in 1871.

Water was diverted from an adjacent stream by use of the Myers Pump which has been mounted next to this monument. This property was the last farm within the city limits of Dublin.

The commercial center on this property was constructed by Public Storage Incorporated in 1991.
