Download the Placefinder Card for this marker—it's in triplicate—and then print it out, preferably on card stock (cool color paper welcome!). Just cut the papers into threes (there are printed marks to assist you with this) and distribute the cards to information racks in the area. (And, of course, post some pictures and tag us!)


This plaque was featured in the first of the Mysterious Postcards. The plaque tells the story of the reenactingStones and as such is one a handful of key sites for understanding the importance of islands in Kcymaerxthaere.

This marker is featured in our new Kcymaerxthaere Travel iPhone App.


If you head north from downtown Grand Rapids along Monroe (the first street in from the river on the left bank [east bank at that point]) you will get to Canal Park aways after the 6th Street Bridge. It will be right along the river. At the north end of the park, just before you get to the intersection with Walbridge, there will be a parking lot on the left. Go down towards the river, there will be a concavity indented into the bank. The plaque is at the north end.

Public Dedication

It was all part of the first ArtPrize event in 2009, and all 5 of the plaques in Grand Rapids were dedicated on an epic (well 90 minutes) walking tour and exploration during on the 19th.
