Fur trappers and traders were the first white men in this locality. William H. Ashley and men arrived in the spring of 1829.

The principal leaders were
James Bridger - Etienne Provost
Jedediah S. Smith

James Bridger, discoverer of the Great Salt Lake in 1824, trapped the streams of this region in 1824 and many subsequent years.

Jedediah S. Smith with Harrison G. Rogers and fur party passed near here in August 1826, moving southwesterly to the Pacific.

Placed in tribute to the personnel of that gallant enterprise.
