Pioneer Black Rock Resort
On July 27, 1847 an exploring party of pioneers bathed near historic Black Rock. In 1851, the first recorded fourth of July celebration was held here when about 150 vehicles and sixty horsemen arrived from Salt Lake City. A huge homemade flag was unfurled. About 1860, a rock house was erected where guests were entertained. In 1880, Alonzo Hyde and David J. Taylor erected one hundred bath houses, bowery, boardwalk and other equipment. Steamboats sailing the Lake were an attraction.
