Anyone know if there's special meaning to this sign in WDW?

My new last name is Herrick and during our wedding/honeymoon trip, one of husband's brothers noticed this sign in Frontierland:



I know a lot of things posted in Disney have a story behind them and was wondering if this had any kind of story behind it? Even if it doesn't, we all got a kick out of it! Thanks for any help!

One of Disney's Project Manager's is Robert Herrick. Probably refers to him.

It might be a true story.

So a blog named shoes, shorts gloves found this book...

not sure on the Disney connection, but I would bet (after taking the KTK tour) that they were trying to bring in some historical accuracy. They did a lot in Liberty Square, and the 2 lands transition?
Just a guess.

There we go. The play on names. It is a real company, but an homage to the PM (which they also do in the parks). Makes sense.

That's pretty neat too! I'm sure I could tell my BIL anything and he would be enthralled . Thanks!
