This is the Place Monument

Founded on July 24, 1847 by a group consisting of 143 men, 3 women and 2 children, they established the first, permanent non-Native American settlement in the valley. These pioneers were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their leader was Brigham Young.

They traveled over 1,000 miles traveling by wagons or handcarts or walking to reach this valley in their quest to establish a place where they could have religious freedom. When they reached the Salt Lake Valley, Brigham Young said, “This is the right place, drive on.”
