Long Description:
Plaque inscription:

ONCE A FARMING AND RANCHING COMMUNITY OF NEARLY 100 FAMILIES,
LITTLE REMAINS OF THIS FORMER TOWN SITE. A TERRITORIAL SCHOOLHOUSE WAS
LOCATED JUST SOUTH OF THIS SPOT, AND IN 1891 A POSTOFFICE OPENED ALONG
SIDE WITH A GENERAL STOREA FEW MILES SOUTHWEST OF HERE.
THIS AREA SPOTTED WITH FOUNDATIONS REPRESENTING ALL THAT REMAINS
OF THE MANY STRUCTURES OF SILOAM IRRIGATION DITCHES BROUGHT WATER
TO RELOCATE, UNTIL THE 1930'S DROUGHT FORCED MOST OF THE POPULATION TO
RELOCATE. IN 1943 THE POST OFFICE CLOSED, AND IN THE 1950'S THE
SCHOOLHOUSE WAS CONSOLIDATED.
