Clear Creek!

Clear Creek
Is there a plaque?  YES! 🙂

What is it? A plaque at the entrance of the Win-River Casino!
What makes it historical? The guide says: Five miles up the creek, at Reading’s Bar, is the site of the discovery of gold by Major Pierson B. Reading and his Indian laborers in 1848.

Other tidbits: That pretty well sums it up!
