Pioneer First Camp Ground
Near this site, February 6, 1856, in zero weather,
Beaver pioneers made their first camp. Prior
to this, the land had been rejected as unfit
for cultivation, but the amount of water
available gave courage. At a mass meeting in
Parowan, some of the more venturesome families
were selected. Led by Captain Simeon F. Howd,
Wilson G. Nowers, James P. Anderson, John
Henderson, Ross G. Rogers, J.M. Davis, Lorin W.
Babbit, William Wanlass, and James Low, they
faced the seemingly impossible and redeemed
the valley.
