[ARCHIVED] Museum Opens May 26


Within this difficult country there are sheltered drainages, valleys and basins that are far more hospitable to people and livestock than are the surrounding windswept badlands. Henry ’s Fork, Brown ’s Park and other smaller valleys in the county have microclimates that have made them inviting to humans for thousands of years. There is extensive evidence of long-standing human occupation. Stone chips, projectile points, fire pits, middens and petroglyphs suggest that the Green River corridor has been both a thoroughfare and an area of habitation for ancient peoples. Modern man trapped and hunted in the area. Outlaws roamed the area using the remoteness to hide from lawmen.

Daggett County was named for Ellsworth Daggett, the first surveyor who helped develop irrigation for the county.
