1. The Chinese Walls at Folger Estate Stable Marker
Inscription.  These stone walls are part of a network of trails and roads built by Chinese immigrants. In 1872 Simon L. Jones bought 1,500 acres of timberland in Woodside and developed them into farmlands, orchards and vineyards with the use of Chinese labor. These fine, enduring walls, constructed without mortar or coping, are a testament to the craftsmanship and expertise of Chinese workers, whose labors helped to build California.
 
Erected 2008 by Friends of the Walls and the Chinese Historical Society of America.
