The Spanish Fork
Indian Farm Reservation

Comprising twenty square miles and extending
from the state highway and the Spanish
Fork River to Utah Lake, was set apart in
1854 by Brigham Young, Utah Supt. of U.S.
Indian Affairs. Joseph E. Beck was appointed
farm superintendent. Dr. Garland Hurt suc-
ceeded Brigham Young in 1855, and erected
a trading post 60 rods north of this spot.
Col. O. H. Irish succeeded Dr. Hurt, and in 1865
made a treaty here with 15 Indian chiefs
whereby the Indians surrendered their
title and in 1867 moved to the Uintah Basin.
