1. Highway 49 - The Golden Chain Marker
Inscription.  This monument marks the Southern Terminus of Highway 49 which passes through fifty-one cities, towns and settlements in eleven counties in its three hundred and ten mile route through some of the most scenic and mineral-rich areas in all the land. From the Placer and Hydraulic mines of the North to the hardrock southern mines, all may be seen along this gold-rich lower slope of the Sierra. Stones native to each of the eleven counties have been selected by the Sierra Historic Sites Association and the Golden Chain Council for the construction of this monument.
Erected by Jim Savage Chapter 1852 E Clampus Vitus.
