1. Rockland Valley Marker
Inscription.  The first pioneer families from Utah came here in 1879 and were met by a Spanish prospector, Guadelupe Valdez. Rockland was named for Rock Creek, which runs the full length of this valley. It was one of the early settlements of Idaho. The first L.D.S. meetings were held in homes. In 1884 the Saints were organized into a Ward with Isaac Thorn as Bishop. This building was erected by Rockland Relief Society in 1914. In 1954 it was repaired and used as a meeting place and relic hall by the Daughters of Utah Pioneers.
 
Erected 1956 by Daughters of Utah Pioneers, Camp Lupe, Power County, Idaho. (Marker Number 223.)
