More about this marker. Marker is to the right of the front door of the Whiskey Flat Saloon (adjacent to and to the left of the St. George Hotel), just above the ashtray.
Regarding Moose Milk. Moose Milk, as served in this saloon, consisted of a generous shot of bourbon, an equal measure of half-and-half cream, and some rum. Served over ice, and topped with nutmeg, it may be an acquired taste. It did seem to have the property of improving in flavor, the more that was drunk.
1. Hidden Marker
If I'm not mistaken that hidden marker used to hang in the National Hotel and referred to where the police station now stands.
Editor's Note: We have reports of a marker in the hotel, but as yet no confirmation whether it was this marker or a similar one.
