Location: Sowiette Park (North Park) approximately 600 N. on 500 W., Provo, Utah
Provo was settled by Mormon Pioneers March 12, 1849. East of this monument a second fort was built in April, 1850. It was here that the settlers were threatened with massacre by Chief Walker and his band of Indians, but were saved by Chief Sowiett’s stern warning, “When you attack you will find me and my braves defending!”
