  1. This site is a walking park in Enoch, UT dedicated to John Pidding Jones and his sons. John P was a Mormon pioneer from England who played an important role in rebuilding Southern Utah's iron industry after the failure of the Deseret Iron Works. First he worked for a local iron works, and contributed greatly to building it up into a thriving business. Then, he decided he needed his own blast furnace and built this furnace and coke oven. Originally there was also a blacksmith shop and a foundry on site, but those structures were not preserved. Many parts and pieces of machinery were produced here that helped to build other important structures in Southern Utah, such as mining equipment, hammers, and rollers for mills. This site is definitely worth preserving, as it contributed greatly to the building of Southern Utah as we know it today. -queencharade

Maintenance Issues
  1. Is this marker part of a series?
  2. Can this marker be seen from the road?
  3. Is the marker in the median?
