Description

Miles Goodyear was a 19-year old orphan from Connecticut when he joined a missionary group headed for Oregon in 1836. He left the group en route and set out on his own in Utah. He became a fur trapping mountain man, married the daughter of an Indian chief and erected a trading fort before he picked up and headed for California when the Mormons arrived in Utah. (He made a big gold find in California but died shortly thereafter.) Anyway, the cabin he built about 1845 is on display next to the small Pioneer Museum displaying items from the Mormon pioneer days.
