1. Fourteen Mile House Marker
Inscription.  Just 14 miles from Sioux City on the Military Road from that place to Ft. Randall, this house was built of logs by Francis Reandeau about 1861. A Frenchman, he and his son, Lyzimon, whose name is carved on one of the original logs, ran this stage stop, tavern and store for over a decade until the new Dakota Southern Railway came by in 1872. A wall, highly polished, of the original structure is to be seen within, which has been recently renovated by Francis Chicoine, its owner.
 
Erected 1966 by Francis Chicoine and State Historical Society. (Marker Number 422.)
