Inscription.  Fort Hall Indian Reservation was established by government order July 14, 1867.

Homesteaders moved into the beautiful Inkom Valley and by October 18, 1902 school district 46 was created. E.M. Webb, A.J. Damron and Marceise Sorelle trailed logs through deep snow to the selected site and an 18x20 foot building was erected. Gertrude Kenney was the first teacher.
