This memorial park and monument honor the memory of Elder Joseph Standing of Salt Lake City, Utah, a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, (Mormon) who was killed here by a mob July 21, 1879. His companion, Elder Rudger Clawson, who later became president of the Council of the Twelve Apostles of the church, was unharmed.

The cooperation of W. C. Puryear and family who donated the land and were most helpful in other ways, made this memorial possible.
