No. 212
Erected 1955

March 12, 1887 Frederick I. Jones, Farley R. Butt, Charles E. Walton and George A. Adams came here to start the L.D.S. Blue Mountain Mission. After their families arrived they camped at Verdure the first summer. In 1888 the families of M. Peterson, W.E. Hyde, Wm. Adams, and J.E. Rogerson came. This square was the activity center with a sports area, bowery, log relief society room and a co-op store. A log house built in 1888 stood 125 ft. west and was used for church, school and recreation.
