1. The Stag Saloon Marker
Inscription.
(There are two markers mounted on the monument.)
Upper Marker:

Built in 1873, it is the oldest structure in Gonzales. It became a saloon in 1890 and has never strayed from such an honorable enterprise since that time.

It was right behind you.
Close your eyes and imagine sounds
From the past, swinging doors, the
Clink of glasses, a toast to someone.
Gone, But Not Forgotten
