Text of sign:

 

Eagle Rock Ferry

 

On June 20, 1863, Bill Hickman started a ferry 9 miles up Snake River for thousands of gold hunters headed for mines that now 

are in Montana.  

 

Named for an eagle that had a nest on a rock there, this ferry flourished until James Madison Taylor replaced it two years later with

a bridge across a narrow lava gorge here. Idaho Falls eventually grew up around Taylorís bridge.

 

Text prepared by the Idaho Historical Society  Marker made & installed by Idaho Transportation Department.

 

Graphics on the sign - In addition to the text there is a map of Idaho with the signs location marked and the notation that this is 

sign number 224.
