1. Herbert Hoover Marker
Met here with the citizens of Madison County as their neighbor and friend and eloquently thanked them for their hospitality.

Speaking of his fishing camp at the headwaters of the Rapidan River, Mr. Hoover concluded his remarks with these words:

“Next to prayer fishing is the most…constant reminder of the democracy of life, of humility and of human frailty....for all men are equal before fishes. And it is desirable that the president of the United States should be periodically reminded of the fundamental fact..that the forces of nature discriminate for no man.”

Erected 1960 by A Culpeper Neighbor.
