Inscription.  
Cody, Frank and Luther North were for a time partners in a ranch located along the Dismal River in Nebraska.

This cabin was their headquarters. The cabin was moved from its original location to the Bratt Ranch in 1882.

Nate Trego later purchased the cabin and moved it to his ranch near Tryon, Nebraska. The cabin, through the years, has undergone some alteration. Mrs. May Tragus and family donated the cabin and it was moved to the present location.
