Inscription.  A valley north and south, a sandspit east and west — this was the crossroad of the centuries. Down the valley on Indian trails came the laden horses of the Fur Brigade from 1824 to 1848. Later, miners and settlers streamed northward. Across the sandspit ran the busy Dewdney Trail to the eastern goldfields. Routes of the past are highways of today.
