Long Description:
The monument has a Pony Express National Historic Trail plaque on it. Diamond Springs was part of the Pony Express trail. The plaque reads: "This town, settled in 1848, derived its name from its crystal clear springs. Among the richest in this vicinity its diggings produced a 25 pound nugget, one of the largest in El Dorado County. Its most thriving period was in 1851. Later it became a contender for the county seat. Through its lumber, lime production, and agriculture, Diamond Springs retained some of its early importance."
