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

The marker text reads:



This route of the historic Applegate Trail passed through this location from 1847 onward. The FIRST river ford that settlers traveled across in 1846 was located further east up the Klamath River, near Keno, Oregon. I have uploaded a screenshot of a map of the area that highlights this historic marker (as A-58) and was created by the organization. Their website is dedicated to all the emigrant trails that passed through Nevada, California and Oregon and they have created many historical 'T' markers along specific trail points. Their website also sells publications devoted to these historic trails of the West.
