Inscription.  In 1856, Carl Ludwig Deecke (1814-1864), pronounced Decker, purchased 10 acres of land at the intersection of Plank Road (CTH NN) and Granville Road. In 1858, Deecke petitioned the Cedarburg Town Board of Supervisors to layout a "good, serviceable" road (Pleasant Valley Road) from Green Bay Road to the road between sections 1 and 2 in Jackson (CTH M). Carl and his wife Sophie built and operated a general store at this location until 1865. This intersection has also been the location of a tavern, blacksmith shop and cheese and dairy establishment. Neighbors and local residents have referred to this intersection as "Deckers Corners" since as early as 1865.
 
Erected by Town of Cedarburg.
