Uinta Springs
This location, later called Fountain Green,
was a favorite camping place for travelers.
Sept. 30, 1853, James Nielson, Wm. Lake, Wm. Reed
and Thos. Clark, while camping here with their
ox teams, were killed by Indians. Under direction
of Brigham Young in July, 1859, George W. Johnson,
his son, Amos, and a group of pioneers established
a settlement. Big Spring, one mile west, supplies
this city with water and power, and the major
part of the electricity for Moroni, Wales, and
Levan.
