1. Red Hill Marker
Inscription. In early descriptions it was known as Cerrito De Las Ranas, meaning the Hill of the Frogs. In the 1890s this hill became the scene of mining excitement. Its soil composition, very red in color, had caused early American settlers to name it Red Hill. This landmark is a physical reminder of our rich State and local history.
 
Erected 2005 by Michael B. Cross, Boy Scout Troop 323.
