From the plaque:

On this site, the Boston-Newton Joint Stock Association encamped here on September 26, 1849. The company left Boston April 16 and arrived at Sutter's Fort September 27, after a remarkable journey across the continent. A rich store of written records preserved by these pioneers has left for posterity a fascinating picture of the gold rush.

Tablet placed by California Centennials Commission. Base furnished by descendants of Boston-Newton party. Dedicated June 4, 1950.
