Old Stage Road Marker


Coming from Jacksonville, the Old Stage Road makes a jog, first to the right and then to the left. The left turn is just before the Madrone Trail Public Charter School. From this turn, the marker is located 0.55 miles, on the right.

This marker was installed in 1939 to mark the Old Stage Road out of Jacksonville. On our first visit, the plaque was missing, but the stone marker is clearly the one shown in the 1939 photo at SOHS. In the 1939 photo the plaque reads:

                     THE OLD STAGE ROAD

                      along this road passed the

                          early day travel of


                                               ERECTED BY

                                      CRATER LAKE CHAPTER

                                DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN



On a later visit, the plaque had been replaced in 2018 by the Crater Lake Chapter of the DAR.
