Long Description:
In 1867 Paul A. Schettler, an ardent supporter of the silk industry in Utah, acquired this land and planted five acres in mulberry trees, the leaves of which were used to feed silk worms. He built two cocooneries near this location. Elizabeth Von Bergen (Beck), a Swiss weaver, came from France to operate the looms installed by Schettler. Several types of looms were used.
