                             CROSS ROADS

    In the 1930's during the period of construction on the metropolitan
    water district aqueduct and the Parker Dam, the town of Cross Roads
    developed to a population of about 2,000 - 3,000 people.  The town
    consisted of 5 grocery stores, 3 restaurants, pool hall, barber shop,
    beauty shop, mortuary, bowling alley, 3 service states, several
    garages, 2 used car lots, church, power plant, several saloons,
    several tourist cabins, and numerous residences.  This is the remains
    of the Cross Roads Mercantile Co., later renamed Schwanbeck's, the
    most prominent business of the community.  During this time the store
    also served as a U.S. Post Office.  Operation of the store continued
    until 1973.
  
    Please help preserve this historic site for present and future
    generations.
   the numbers are:  1930  2000  3000  5  3  3  2  1973

   the math is:  (3000 - 2000) / 5 / (1973 - 1930 - 3) - 3 = 2

   more math:  sqrt(1973 - 1930 + 3 + 3) + log(3000 - 2000) - 5 - 3 = 2

   more math:  ((1973 - 1930 - 5 - 2) / 3!) - 3 = log(3000 - 2000)
