This marker is found just to the north of a large LDS church. The plaque reads:

Daughters of Utah Pioneers
No. 216
Erected 1955

Before the close of 1885 the families
of James Mitchell, A. T. Lawrence, Darius
Allen, Joshua Adams, Felix, Heber, Frank
and Ann Huband, Albert Christensen and
W. C. Mickelson settled here. Soon others
followed. These settlers were organized
into a branch of the L. D. S. Church in 1893
and a log room built by George Steel served
as first school with Miss Wood as teacher.
In Feb. 1895 in the home of Wm. Crandall, the
ward of Shelley was organized with John F.
Shelley as bishop. Early pioneers made
irrigation possible in this section.
