HIGHWAY 49 – THE GOLDEN CHAIN

 

This monument marks the Southern Terminus of Highway 49 which

passes through fifty-one cities, towns and settlements in

eleven counties in its three hundred and ten mile route

through some of the most scenic and mineral-rich areas

in all the land. From the Placer and Hydraulic mines of

the North to the hardrock southern mines, all may be seen

along this gold-rich lower slope of the Sierra. Stones

native to each of the eleven counties have been selected

by the Sierra Historic Sites Association and the Golden

Chain Council for the construction of this monument.
