Inscription.  Cheyenne, Arapaho and Sioux warriors burned the first Julesburg in early 1865. The second Julesburg was formed here, just outside the Fort Sedgwick Military Reservation. At its peak, the community included a store, blacksmith shop, billiards saloon, stage station and two warehouses. The 1867 arrival of the Union Pacific Railroad north of the river ended the grandiose visions of town planners. Once again Julesburg was on the move - this time to meet the railroad.

The site of the second Julesburg is on private property along the bank of the South Platte River just north of here.
