Inscription.  William Atkin built this home after he was assigned to go south to strengthen the southern Utah settlements. The house was located eight miles south of St. George, on a 160 acre farm that later became the one-family town of Atkinville. A flood and storm nearly destroyed Atkinville in 1906, but some of the original foundation stones were used in the construction of this replica.
 
Erected by This Is The Place Foundation. (Marker Number 14.)
