Brigham City, first called Ballenger's Camp, was established here in April, 1876, as one of four fortified settlements erected along the Little Colorado River by Mormon pioneers of the United Order. They farmed the land, dammed the river and built a flour mill. A post office was established in 1879, but droughts and floods forced abandonment of the village in 1881. Purchased in 1890 by F.T. La Prade, the site became a farm and diary until it was acquired by the City of Winslow in 1947.

I Saw The Marker

Have to cross through two gates to get to historic site. Short distance from parking lot. Ample parking and easy to get to.
