Long Description:
Original staircase was wood and it was constructed in the early 1900s, but it was replaced by cement stairs in 1963. It is 88 steps from bottom near Brazos River to the top on the bluff above. Have not been able to find out why it was named this.

"Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Haran. When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. He had a dream in which he saw a stairway/ladder resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it."
Bible verse: Genesis 28:10-12
