On June 28, 1986, the Texas Sesquicentennial Wagon Train paid homage to those earlier travelers at this crossing on the Trinity River. That night, the train and its 1,000 men, wommen, and children camped at Valley Ranch in Irving as the train neared the end of its 3,000 mile journey. This plaque is dedicated to those modern voyagers and their predecessors in another great year of Texas Freedom.
Erected 1986 by Irving Heritage Society.
