Long Description:

Text of plaque:

Centenostone

Upon the concrete base is a monument made from stones gathered from twenty-three historic places of the Disciples. The "CENTENOSTONE" is the one upon which Alexander Campbell stood when he preached the sermon after he and his thirteen churches had been excluded from the Redstone Baptist Association. Around this stone are grouped the twenty-two others identified.

The plaque then describes the source and significance of each of the other 22 stones.
