1. British Settlers Marker
Inscription.  Most early Bear Lake settlers came from Britain. One was the first woman convert to the LDS church in Europe.

Born in Preston, England, Aug. 24, 1806. Ann Elizabeth Walmsley Palmer was baptized July 30, 1837. An invalid, she was carried into the water, but walked out unaided. After coming to Nauvoo, Illinois in 1842, she drove an ox team to Utah in 1849 and settled here in 1863. She died here Nov. 2, 1890. Through faith she gained the strength to overcome trials and to achieve triumphs.
