Upper Marker:
A tiny village where violence, hangings, drinking, and bull and bear fights were part of daily life. Located on the old Santa Cruz Road, which crossed a portion of the San Andreas and Corralitos ranchos. As the town became more civilized, the name was changed to Freedom.

Lower Marker:
Originally erected in the rear (outside corner) of the Whiskey Hill Saloon, the plaque above was torn apart when the bar owner realized that even with this plaque, his bar was not a Clamper "Watering Hole." The plaque survived; the bar did not. Re-erected here at the Wooden Nickel Bar & Grill in recognition of its status as the last remaining bar in Freedom and in celebration of the spirits of Whiskey Hill.
