1. Chase Mill Marker
Inscription. Built in 1852 by Isaac Chase, a native of New York State who came to Utah in September 1847. His daughter Louisa drove the ox team across the plains which brought the mill stones and mill irons which were used in the manufacture of flour. In 1854, Brigham Young became a partner with Isaac Chase, and the mill was fitted out with improved machinery. During the famine of 1856-57, many families were furnished with flour gratis, and the lives of many men, women, and children were saved. Brigham Young acquired full possession of the mill in 1860. It ceased operations when the farm with its buildings were purchased by Salt Lake City in 1880.
