Beneath this spot in 1851, Joe H. Zumwalt established the first chapter of the Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus. On his way West, Zumwalt discovered an amusing ritual in the newspaper office at Bowling Green, Mo. Arriving in Moke Hill in 1851, he observed that the miners needed a humorous outlet. Chapter #1001 was chartered in an unoccupied community jail. From here the idea of E.C.V. spread like wildfire in the diggins. Let all Clampers, Frolicking Friars and Vituscan Missionaries join in a salute to our honorable California founder.
