Pine Valley
In 1855 this valley was discovered by Issac
Riddle, an Indian missionary, while searching
for a lost cow. The first sawmill south of the
rim of the Great Basin was built on this site
in 1855-1856 by Robert Richey, Jehu Blackburn
and Isaac Riddle. The first homes in the
valley were erected around the mill. Pine
Valley became the source of much of the
lumber used in early towns of Southern
Utah and Nevada.
