Long Description:
The marker text reads as follows:

"Site of Mount Carmel, the first organized community in the Eudora area. John Booth donated land for a Presbyterian Church and a seminary for girls. Rev. Benjamin Shaw was director and pastor. Booth and Shaw are buried in Mount Carmel Cemetery. The seminary operated from the 1840s until 1903. Carmel lost its identity when E.C. James named his plantation after his daughter, Eudora. Part of the plantation became a townsite and the post office was named Eudora which was incorporated in 1904."
