Inscription. In 1849 Charles Ogburn built a road to this site from Fort Reading. Ogburn’s road later became part of the famed Noble Emigrant route. Ogburn built a cabin, planted orchards & later sold to his brother John in 1856. Charlie’s Place was popular for its fine brandy & blacksmithing. Bear & bull fights promoted the family enterprise. In 1942, Herbert "Ringtail” Johnson bought the ranch from the Ogburn heirs. The second house on this site, built in 1867, burned in 1952.
