Inscription
"Somewhere here lie the remains of the three unfortunates hanged in late 1849 from the oak tree in the feed corral after fair trial by the vigilantes. This incident changed the name of Dry Diggins to Hangtown.

Let us not judge them too harshly for those were the rough days of the great Gold Rush."
