Mountain Meadows Massacre Site

ADD TO MY TRIP

On the Old Spanish Trail in the 19th century a large massacre took place on this site. It was a scandal at the time, and it was reported that 120 western bound emigrants were slaughtered by a local indian tribe. But it wasn't real. The large party had been killed by the Mormon Militia, recently settled in the area after being chased out of various places further east.
