I nscribed on the Monument:
"To the homesteaders and early settlers of Grant County this monument is gratefully dedicated.
In recognition of their courage in the face of untold hardships and the descendants sincerely
acknowledge their sense of obligation.
These early Grant County settlers were among some 100,000 who lined up September 16,
1893 to race for a 160 acre claim. The homesteads scattered throughout an area comprising
six million acres. The award went to the first person arriving, planting their stake, and duly
registering their location at the land office.
Others while not actually making the run aquired land at an early date, either by purchase or
barter, lived on it and raised their families together with the homesteaders became the early
pioneer settlers of Grant County, laying the foundation for our modern society."
