A birthday gift from the people of Hobart to their town on August 6, 1976, her 75th anniversary. This marker is dedicated to her pioneers, those courageous men and women who left the security of their homes in established communities to build a new life in the new country created by the colorful and exciting Great Land Lottery of 1901. In some small measure this is an expression of appreciation for what they did, or the sacrifices they made and the hardships they surmounted as they went about carving an enduring society out of a raw prairie.
