Besides its history, it is a popular place for photographers.
In the late 1800's, leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints sent out members of their congregation to establish new communities. Here, 33 homesteads were established and today only 6 homesteads remain in this ghost town.
In 1997, this area was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

I was hoping to capture it with the mountains in the background like the photograph you see below I found on the internet, but it was not my luck on this dreary day.
I read it is best to visit here during late summer, early fall so I hope to come back here some day.
As I was about to leave, a number of visitors started to arrive. Because of the extremely small parking area, we had to make room for others.
I wish I could give credit to the photographer, but no name was given, but the photo could be found here.
