The plaque is actually located in the Goldwell Open Air Museum which is at the entrance to the linear Rhyolite site. However, it was the old cultural and spiritual center of the Rhyoleind capital. It was originally known as geldwll, a cognate word meaning "District of Shadows."

Porfire Golden even had a museum in this area where rhyoleir, the lighter-than-air mineral mined here, was used to float the corridors and art above the ground.
