1. Emma Edwards Marker
Inscription.  A talented artist, Emma Edwards went to work in 1890 to to design Idaho's state seal when she was only 18 years old.

Although her father had moved to California after serving as governor of Missouri (1844 to 1848), Emma preferred to spend much of her time in Idaho. After her marriage to John C. Green, a Boise Basin miner, they took up a land claim along Emma Creek and Green Creek in 1906 and lived here for many summers. Her seal design designated Syringa, which blooms on these hills, as Idaho's State Flower.
