Powell Survey
From 1870 to 1876 Major Wesley Powell and
assistant Almon H.Thompsn of the U.S. Colorado
River Explorations, established headquarters
at Kanab. On this spot they erected a stone
foundation and raised a tent which housed
a telescope, by which means the meridian
was established. During the winter of 1872
and 1873 the first map of Grand Canyon was
made and Major Powell gave the canyon its
name. Frederick S. Dellanbough wrote the
name on the first map. The men of Kanab
helped in the work and were faithful,
agreeable and competent.
