Inscription. In 1864 a group of hardy pioneers braved the mountain snows to save their families from starvation. This group of men encountered snows that were impassable. According to their faith they knelt on a quilt in a prayer circle. The answer to their prayer was to walk on the quilts. Thus we honor seven men as the Panguitch Quilt Walkers. They are Jessie Louder, Alexander Matheson, William Talbot, Thomas Jefferson Adair, Thomas Morgan Richards, John Lowe Butler II, and John Paul Smith.
