More about this marker. Through Lucy's recollections and photographs, Walter Knott of Knott's Berry Farm, was able to piece together and rebuild the old silver town during the early 1950's. At one time, Doresy, a black and white colie dog, carried the U.S. Mail in sacks slung over his back, from Bismarck to the Post Office at Calico. The mail was never detained and no holdups ever took place while Dorsey worked the route.
