The plaque reads:
Frank Milner arrived in Allensworth from the Bay Area in 1911 and set up his first barbershop in a small frame house just west of this location. In 1914, with volunteers from the community, he constructed a concrete block structure similar to the reconstructed building on the site. Milner's Barbershop played an important part in early town life. The pioneer women of the community stated that the men would meet here to discuss "all manner of agreements and disagreements." The community band, organized by Joshua Singleton, also practiced in the shop. By 1922, Frank Milner had closed his business and moved to Tulare, California, where he opened another barbershop. His new business continue for another 25 years. Many of his Allensworth neighbors came to Tulare as customers.
