Inscription.  March 12, 1887 Frederick I. Jones, Farley R. Butt, Charles E. Walton and George A. Adams came here to start the L.D.S. Blue Mountain Mission. After their families arrived they camped at Verdure the first summer. In 1888 the families of M. Peterson, W.E. Hyde, Wm. Adams, and J.E. Rogerson came.
