Inscription.  Fort Hall Indian Reservation was established by government order July 14, 1867. Following treaties made with the Shoshone Indians in July, 1902 a portion of the reservation was open for white settlement. 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. Harry and Frank Steward, Erwin and Orpha Damron, Mike and Hattie Sorelle and Hazel Preece were the first pupils.
