Long Description:
Corps of Discovery II – Culbertson, MT, is located on the lawn in front of the Culbertson Museum on the north side of US Highway 2 in Culbertson, Roosevelt County, Montana. The four-inch commemorative disk is mounted in a nine-foot diameter, round concrete pad, flush with the surface and at the center of a red and tan inlaid concrete star design. The disk is about 200 feet south-southwest of the museum’s front door, about 130 feet southwest of a flagpole, about 199 feet west of the centerline of a gravel road leading north, about 21 feet east of a chain-link fence, and about 12 feet southwest of the base of a metal bear sculpture. The disk does not have any identifying stamping other than the standard design elements of the commemorative series of disks: CORPS OF DISCOVERY II – 200 YEARS TO THE FUTURE – PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP.
