Inscription.  
In Honor of
Jacques La Ramie
Free trapper,
who came to this region around 1815
and met an unknown fate,
probably at the hands of Indians,
about 1820, on one of
the rivers bearing his name
between which this monument stands.
Tradition says he was an honest, just,
and courageous leader and trader.
His name is perpetuated by
three Laramie Rivers, Fort Laramie,
the Laramie Plains, Laramie Peak,
Laramie City, and Laramie County.

 
Erected 1941 by Historical Landmark Commission of Wyoming.
