Long Description:
This historical marker is part of a series of historical markers located all around Klamath County and commissioned by the Klamath County Historical Society.

From researching the name 'Stukel' I discovered that Stephen Stukel was an early pioneer in Klamath Falls and a prominent rancher who acquired several ranch properties in the area that would become the Mills Addition, which is the neighborhood that this historical marker resides at.

Directions to historical marker: The marker is located just NW of Eberlein Ave after you cross the Eberlein Bridge over the A canal and just off the A canal bike path.
