Nevada Historical Marker Transcription
In 1873, Frank Button and his uncle Isaac Button drove cattle to the area to begin ranching operations in the rich, fertile valleys of northern and eastern Humboldt County.
Under their famous Double Square brand, they raised thousands of fine horses on the 4,000 square miles of ranchland. Although the original ranch was sold in 1884, Frank Button continued his ranching activities in this area, and later served as the postmaster in Button Point and as the Chairman of the Board of Humboldt County Commissioners.
