Inscription. The one room school built here in 1863 survived mining booms and busts, world wars and a great depression only to have social changes close its doors forever in 1949. It is with sincere gratitude that we donate this marker for opportunities provided us during those hard depression times.
 
Erected 1996 by Hack and Leo McInturf.
