Indian trail Forest Home Cemetery

The inscription on this pink granite boulder reads:

An ancient Indian trail
once passed this boulder
skirting the forest along the
Des Plaines River through groves
of wild plum and hazel thickets.
    Eastward the tall grass of the
prairie stretched as far as the eye
could reach. Later it served as a
road for the early settlers in the
long months when the flooded prairies
were impassable. May those who now
follow this trail gain comfort from
nature's peace and beauty. 1942
