Long Description:
From 1881 to 1893, Garfield Beach was the most famous and finest recreation resort on the shores of Great Salt Lake; with its railroad station, lunch stand, restaurant, bath houses and pier leading to the dance pavilion and the pioneer steamboat, "City of Corinne," exhibited at anchor. Lake Point was located 1 l/2 miles west. A three-story hotel erected there by Dr. Jeter Clinton became a stopping place for Overland Stages.
