Inscription.   Known to the Indians as Willow Valley was renamed by fur trappers and traders in the winter of 1825-1826. James Bridger led the first trappers to a winter encampment near here in 1824 towards December 1825. William L. Sublette, in charge of Gen William H. Ashley’s Mountain Men, ordered many of the seasons furs cached in this vicinity. Those interested in the furs stored to await General Ashley’s Merchandise caravan of 1826, and similar caravans in subsequent years, were William L. Sublette, James Bridger, Jedediah S. Smith, Thomas Fitzpatrick, Etienne Provot, Robert Campbell, James P. Beckworth, David E. Jackson, Louis Vasquez, Jean Baptiste Gervais, Moses Harris, and many others. Utah Pioneer Trails and Landmarks Association and Logan City Welfare Committee.
