Mormon Lumber Road Marker Inscription. In the spring of 1852, over one hundred Mormon men donated a full thousand man-days of arduous labor, to construct a road up Waterman Canyon, past this spot, and into the prime timber, where some of their enterprising brethren established six sawmills by 1854.The lumber hauled over this road, thereafter, was used, not only to build San Bernardino, but also throughout Southern California, where the boards were sometimes called, "Mormon Banknotes."Erected 1991 by Glendora, California Chapter, Sons of Utah Pioneers Dedicated, National Society of the Sons of Utah Pioneers. (Marker Number 34.)Location. 34° 14.01′ N, 117° 17.628′ W. Marker is in Arrowhead, California, in San Bernardino County. Marker can be reached from Rim of the World Highway (California Route 18), on the right when traveling west. Marker is located via an access road heading north from the highway. It is right below the HWY 18 and HWY 138. So to sum up there is really nothing there its just a turn out that's a short road and the Historical Marker itself is in pretty bad Shape. If you are heading up the mountain you have to turn left to get to it and when you are done you have to turn left back onto HWY 18 and it seems a little risky so BEWARE. If you are coming down the mountain and you turn right to get here when you are done you jist turn right and merge back onto HWY 18 . Seems a little safer.
