Marker reads, An exploring party of 13 Long Hunters, so named because of the long periods of time spent away from home, camped along Barren River in 1775. Their names were carved on a beech tree, a silent record of the first white men in this area. Henry Skaggs and Joseph Drake of this group had been among first Long Hunters, 1769-71, whose exploring helped open mid-Kentucky.
