On July 27, 1847, an exploring party of pioneers bathed near historic Black Rock. In 1851, the first recorded 4th of July celebration was held here when 150 vehicles and 70 horsemen arrived from Salt Lake City. A huge home-made flag was unfurled. About 1860, a rock home was erected where guests were entertained. In 1880, Alonzo Hyde and David J. Taylor erected 100 bath houses, a bowery, board walk and other equipment. Steam boats sailing the lake were an attraction.
