Inscription.  
A living memorial to the Goll Family whose love of trees preserved this natural sanctuary through five generations. The forest is part of a 320-acre farm purchased in 1837 from the U.S. Government by Peter Goll, Sr. and sold in 1966 to the state of Ohio by his great-granddaughter, Mrs. Florence Goll Louys and her children to perpetuate our great natural heritage for posterity.

State funds for acquisition obtained through the assistance of state representatives William H. Rychener and Fred B. Hadley.
 
Erected by Stryker Chamber of Commerce in recognition of those who made the preservation of this Virgin Timber stand possible.
