1. Jacob Green Jackson State Forest Marker
Inscription.  This state forest is named in honor of Jacob Green Jackson (1817-1901), founder of the Caspar Lumber Company. His motto "Walk Humbly - Deal Justly," was exemplified by his operation and that of his successor and grandson, Casimir Jackson Wood. Trees were first harvested from these lands in 1861. In 1947 the State of California purchased this property for the purpose of promoting and demonstrating continuous forest production.
