"Prior to the erection of the stone marker, a 3' by 5' white steel sign with black lettering was at or near this site. It had been erected as early as 1930 by the first joint trunk highway marking program that was established by the Minnesota Historical Society and the Minnesota Department of Highways in 1929. Historic photos indicate that, when the stone marker was built, this steel sign was installed in the stone marker prior to the installation of the current bronze plaque."
