Daughters of Utah Pioneers
The Chase Mill
Built in 1852 by Isaac Chase, a native of
New York State, who came to Utah in
September 1847. His daughter Louisa drove
the ox team across the plains which brought
the mill stones and mill irons, which were
used in the manufacture of flour. In 1854
Brigham Young became a partner with Isaac
Chase, and the mill was fitted out with
improved machinery. During the famine of
1856-57, many families were furnished flour
gratis, and the lives of many men, women
and children were saved. Brigham Young
acquired full possession of the mill in 1860.
It ceased operations when the farm with its
buildings were purchased by Salt Lake
City in 1880.
