Board's Crossing was first used as a cattle crossing in the early 1870's. Brothers David and William Board moved here from Missouri in 1854. They settled in Salt Springs Valley and raised cattle. This shallow ford across the river was a favorite with local ranchers as the cattle were moved to the mountains each summer. The family built their small cabin here, which still stands. The Boards continued this operation for nearly 30 years then sold to the pioneer family Nichols in 1906.Dedicated by Matuca Chapter 1849E Clampus VitusSept. 9, 1995 (6000)Credo Quia Abserdum
