This pillar of the Memorial Arch of Ipswich is erected as a lasting tribute to the Vision, Foresight and Tireless Energy of Joseph W. Parmley and his co-workers who in 1912 founded the greatest of our trans-continental highways, the Yellowstone Trail. The first portion of the Yellowstone Trail was built from Ipswich its home, east to Aberdeen. From that beginning this great highway grew to span our nation from Plymouth Rock to Puget Sound.
