Lockhart Ferry

Established by Samuel Lockhart in 1856 as a link in the first wagon road from Yreka to Red Bluff, the Lockhart Ferry crossed below the confluence of the Fall and Pit Rivers near this spot. After a massacre in December 1856, the ferry was re-established in 1857 below Fall River Falls.

Plaque placed August 5, 1956 by California State Park Commission in cooperation with Fork Crook Historical Society.
