Daughters of Utah Pioneers
No. 320
Erected 1966
In 1864 several families of Latter-day Saints
settled in this valley but were forced to
evacuate because of Indian troubles. Here in
1868 miners discovered precious metal, and took
possession of the area. April 15, 1883, a branch
of the L.D.S. Church was organized, Hugh D.
Lisonbee, presiding elder, succeeded by Jared
Taylor. When the ward was organized in 1895,
Charles C. Pinny was chosen the first bishop.
A one-room school house was erected and
used for all public meetings.
