This marks the trail of the first communication between Cache Valley and Bear Lake Valley known as the Shoshone Indian Trail in 1864. Mail was carried to Bear Lake on snowshoes, a distance of 25 miles over steep and rugged mountains from Franklin through Cub River Canyon. In 1866 the Deseret Telegraph line was extended from Utah to Franklin in Idaho and in 1871 on to Paris, Idaho, The half-way house where the carriers camped was near this site. The spring supplied them with water.
