Across the street from this location is a tree stump in which the original stake exists that was used to close off the passage to travelers from Grass Valley to Penn Valley. Drivers who frequented this road had to stop at this location and pay the toll. Once appropriate compensation was provided, the gate would be opened to allow passage.
