Hole-in-the-Rock Pioneers

This memorial is in honor of the men, women and children of
the San Juan Mission who came to the area in 1880 in answer
to a call from their church (The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-cay Saints). These Mormon pioneers overcame challenges
of unparalleled difficulty as they blazed a road through some of
the most broken and rugged terrain in North America, including
a path through the Colorado River gorge via a crevic they
named The Hole-in-the-Rock. The challenges of reaching the
area were only surpassed by the formidable task of settling
the San Juan frontier.

"No pioneer company ever built a wagon road through wilder,
rougher, more inhospitable country...None ever demonstrated
more courage, faith, and devotion to cause..."

Dr. David E. Miller, Historian
