1. More's Creek Marker
Inscription. More's Creek is named for J. Marion More, leader of the party of miners who founded Idaho City, October 7, 1862.

Like most of Idaho's early miners, he came originally from the South. Unlike most of them, he struck it rich. During the Idaho gold rush, he had profitable investments in many important mining camps. Hardly anyone else did as much to build Idaho during the early days.
 
Erected by Idaho Historical Society. (Marker Number 318.)
