Grandpa Mabey dedicates the "Birthplace of South Jordan" monument

You may have heard that Grandpa Mabey dedicated a new historical monument called the "Birthplace of South Jordan." It was a very nice occasion and an honor for Grandpa. The monument is located just south of 10600 South along the river bottoms in the River Park development on the Market Street Grill property. You will all have to stop by sometime.

The bricks are from an old Oakeson farm building. The monument depicts the very first pioneer settlements in South Jordan, the White Fawn Flour Mill that existed on the site, and the early native Americans:

I took pictures of the dedication and Grandpa but unfortunately my photos that day for some reason didn't work. So you'll just have to look at a picture Cristie insisted I post. -- Bye -- John
