1. The Fielding Garr Ranch Marker
Inscription.  

The Fielding Garr Ranch operated from 1848 to 1981.

As you walk through the site, see how many different types of building materials you can identify. Ranchers used the natural resources of the Isiand for their construction projects. They gathered rocks for walls and foundations. Few trees grew on the Island so workers used precious wood to frame their structures and then filled the frames with adobe bricks they made from local clay, straw and sand.

From the late 1800s to the mid- 1900s, advances in transportation technologies such as railroads and, later, motorized vehicles made outsourced supplies cheaper and easier to get. Consequently, ranch residents used cinder blocks and corrugated tin in the construction of their later buildings.
 
Erected by Utah State Parks.
