An Oregon Trail emigrant, David Koontz is buried at this historic spot near the trail. The grave is just southeast of the Echo city limits along County Road 1300. The marker is between the road and the railroad tracks.
David Koontz was not related to town founder J.H. Koontz.
Another landmark is visible from the Koontz gravesite across the railroad tracks and to the south. A painted barn depicting an advertisement for Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery is shown on this page and can be viewed in the Echo Gallery.
