Wyman Memorial Plaque Dedication - Colfax, CA

The City of Colfax California will hold the dedication ceremony for the Wyman Memorial plaque at 11:00 am, Wednesday, May 18, 2016.  Appropriately, this is the 113th anniversary of Wyman's overnight stay in Colfax on May 18, 1903.  Read about his visit at the Colfax Station and overnight stay.

The dedication will take place at the Depot Green (Google street view) next to the Museum on Railroad Street, south of Green Valley Street.  Pan left using Google street view and you can see the old "Gillen Hotel" believed to be the location Wyman stayed while in Colfax.

Tom and Helen Austin, plaque sponsors and Waypoint volunteers, are representing the Wyman Project at the dedication ceremony.

The City of Colfax is the hosting authority for the Wyman Memorial plaque and Waypoint sign mounted at the Depot Green park.  Mayor Tom Pamham oversaw the construction of the monument pedestal on which the plaque is mounted.  The  "Waypoint" sign is to be mounted on the light pole behind the monument.
