Regarding Camp Cady (1860-1871). Platrix Chapter No. 2 had erected a marker commemorating Camp Cady in October 1966. It has been missing for some time. This site had been named a State Point of Historical Interest on May 9, 1975. More recent research determined this site played an important enough role in the history of our state to warrant a designation of California Registered Historical Landmark as part of the overall Mojave Road commemoration.
