Inscription.  After centuries of rest, North Crater stirred once more. The old crater wall broke open and lava poured out carrying great chunks of broken wall. Again it rested. About 2000 years ago, lava flowed out for the last time.
 
Erected by National Park Service-United States Department of the Interior.
