These reported incidents of Shoshone Indian attacks on emigrant wagon trains in this gap and surrounding area between 1851 and August 10, 1862, led to the naming of these rock outcrop as "Massacre Rocks."
The granite marker was dedicated by the Sons of Idaho on July 4, 1927. Later removed for the construction of the interstate highway, the marker was repositioned by the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, 153 feet northwest of its original location, on October 8, 1997.
This rock outcrop continues to stand guard over the final, unmarked resting place of untold pioneers who perished during the westward expansion of this great nation.
