This Boulder commemorates the early travel upon the Mormon Trail through Kanseville, now Council Bluffs and is dedicated to the memory of the throngs who crossed Iowa in advance of settlements. Here thousands of pioneers encamped awaiting pasturage on the plains and turns at the ferries to press onward into the beckoning golden west.

We crossed the prairies as of old the pilgrims crossed the sea. To make the west, as they the east. The homestead of the free.

In recognition of its work in erecting this boulder and placing the bas-relief, the Iowa Society, Daughters of the American Revolution and the Historical Department of Iowa, present this tablet to the Council Bluffs Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.

Series This marker is part of the Daughters of the American Revolution series, and the Mormon Pioneer Trail series.
