On the knoll behind this sign once stood a rustic cabin in which pioneer mailman John Templeton Craig died in December 1877.

Craig, who was 56, had been employed to carry the mail between McKenzie Bridge and Camp Polk, near Sisters.
While carrying the Christmas mail, Craig was caught in a sudden storm and later found frozen to death inside the cabin by a search party.
