Inscription. Oldest surviving house in Star Valley is this two room dwelling built in 1889 by Anna Eliza Baker and her 12 year old daughter May. The logs are hand-hewn on four sides and dovetailed at the corners. It was the first home in this area to have a shingled roof and wood floors. The Baker family; Alonzo, Anna Eliza and their 12 children were the first permanent residents on the east side of Salt River in the lower valley.
 
Erected by Star Valley Historical Society, Camp Eliza - Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, Etna Ward Church of Jesus Christ LDS and the Baker Family Descendants.
