The Park Blocks are a 1.1 acre park in Downtown Eugene.

Hitching Post Square

This land was donated in 1863 by Charnel Mulligan
and Eugene Skinner in perpetuity for Lane County use.
Each gave a portion of his Donation Land Claim.
This was a meeting place for pioneers who tied
their horses to the hitching rail while conducting
business. That future generations may be aware
of their valuable contribution.
Oregon Lewis and Clark Chapter DAR is Proud
to dedicate this plaque to the memory of these
hardy and foresighted pioneers
