1. Bredell Family Cemetery Marker
Caption: (upper right) Noah Bredell (center) was one of the last surviving family members. His life was representative of the mixing of cultures. He raised racehorses and owned the stables that provided horses to the U.S. Postal Service for stagecoach mail deliveries to the upper Clearwater valley.; (background) Bird's-eye-view of the Bredells farm
Inscription.  Here the resting place for three generations of Bredells overlooks the river terrace where they lived from 1861 to 1927. The cemetery’s location next to a parking lot may appear unusual, but the Bredell family was part of a thriving Nez Perce community here in the Spalding area long before this became a national park site.
