??First wagon trail in Redwood County, crossed the Redwood River at this fording site. Not yet dammed, the river was a small stream in pioneer years.

??Built in 1853, the road connected Fort Ridgely with the Lower and Upper Sioux Agencies and consisted, in time, of two ruts worn deep in the prairie sod. Some are visible to this day.

??From the Upper Agency near Granite Falls the road continued to army posts along the Missouri River in South Dakota.
