1. Old Molson Marker
Inscription.  

Welcome, folks, to Old Molson, founded in 1900. She was a lively mining camp until a farmer claimed the whole town as part of his homestead. While the dispute raged, disgusted citizens founded New Molson half-a-mile north. People, businesses, the post office - everything moved to New Molson. Its railroad station, elev. 3708 feet, was the highest in the state. The original Molson faded away, but its memories linger in these weather-worn buildings.
 
Erected by Okanogan County Historical Society.
