Long Description:

To commemorate the Centennial passage,through Benton County of the First Westbound Stage coach on the Butterfield Overland Mail Route from St. Louis to San Francisco.
Callahan's Tavern,the sight of which is about a half a mile northeast of this spot,which was the First relay station where teams where changed after entering Arkansas from Missouri.
The stage arrived here about 7 o'clock on the morning of September 18,1858.

Now here I am 149 years later to mark the spot.
