Inscription.  This beer garden, a recent addition to Coloma, was built by Jim Bridgham in the mid 1950s. Jim and his sister Margaret operated a business called the “Hitching Rack” and built the beer garden so the “locals” could sit around, drink a few beers, and discuss the world situation. Today the site is used as a group picnic area, available by reservation.
 
Erected by Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park.
