Inscription. In 1869, John P. Jones and sons moved from the fort at Johnson Springs and purchased land and springs on the east bench of the community. Jones, who was an iron worker, built a coke oven and blast furnace where scrap iron was melted and molded to make fire grates, dog irons, cogwheels, and even a 500 pound hammer to drive the piles for irrigation dams in southern Utah. The name Johnson Springs was changed to Enoch in 1890. Descendants of John P. Jones donated the land to Enoch. The coke oven and blast furnace were made from the boiler of an old railroad steam engine.
