From the plaque:
Near this site stood the
home of Alexis Godey, frontiersman and scout, who lived
here from 1883 until his death on January 19, 1889. Born
in St. Louis, Missouri in 1818, he acted as guide for
John C. Frémont's expedition through the Kern area
in 1843-44, and was honored for his services at the Battle
of San Pasqual in 1846. Moving here in 1883, Godey died January 19, 1889.
Plaque placed by the California State Park Commission in cooperation with the Kern Country Historical Society, El Tejon Parlor No. 239 Native Daughters of the Golden West, and Kern County Museum, October 16, 1960.
