Long Description:
Wrap Text around ImageI discovered this stone marker after reading another historical marker in Skinner Butte Park north of this site that contains a small map inset and highlights this marker and another historical marker just north of here. The inscription is almost impossible to read on this stone marker and so I took the liberty of 'painting' in the letters in Photoshop (I am a graphic designer after all) to make it appear like it once was when monumented most likely many decades ago.

*NOTE* The actual log cabin site was about halfway between this stone marker and the Eugene Skinner memorial marker to the north, also highlighted on the map inset.
