Inscription.  This location, later called Fountain Green, was a favorite camping place for travelers. Sept. 30, 1853, James Nelson, Wm. Luke, Wm. Reed and Thos. Clark, while camping here with their ox teams, were killed by Indians. Under direction of Brigham Young in July, 1859, George W. Johnson, his son, Amos, and a group of pioneers established a settlement. Big Spring, one mile west, supplies this city with water and power and the major part of the electricity for Moroni, Wales and Levan.
