This marker describes the history of the Sexton's Tool House, a historic contributing structure within the Jacksonville Cemetery, a part of the Jacksonville National Historic District. The sign reads:


The Jacksonville Booster Club, in co-operation with
The American Revolution Bicentennial Commission
of Oregon, restored this building in 1975 to orig-
inal specifications, using square cut nails and
original species and types of lumber when it was
necessary to replace boards, moulding and siding.
Special grinding knives were cut in order to make
an exact duplication of the original mouldings and
sidings. A vault underneath still exists where bodies
were kept whenever the occasion required.
