High Lonesome Stage Stand
(Site 11 Miles Northeast)
Ten horses were kept here, as at the three other stations: Shoeingstand (where the horses were reshod each six weeks), Sherwood, and Knickerbocker.
Frequent riders were whiskey drummers (peddlers), lightning rod salesmen and preachers.
Automobiles (1908) and finally the railroad (1910) put the "hacks" on this line out of business.
Erected 1969 by State Historical Survey Committee. (Marker Number 2476.)
