Inscription
In 1854 President Brigham Young sent scouts to locate sites for settlement. Indians living here called it Toquer (Meaning Black). In 1858 eight families were sent from New Harmony to colonize here. They named it Toquerville, which became the county seat of Kane County. Its principal industries were cotton, cane, grapes and fruit. They built the first cotton-gin mill in Utah and the first furniture shop in Dixie. The building that held the mill still stands.
