A little about me, My name is Jacob Barlow and I grew up in Mapleton, Utah. I LOVE to travel and explore and learn local history and post pictures and stories from my adventures, I love sharing what I find and hope you find some value in it. Any time I find aside from work (real estate agent and custom wood door sales) I am out there getting pictures and video of something to preserve the memory of it.
I have goals that keep me entertained like trying to visit each place in Utah, each county in the U.S., trying to photograph each D.U.P. historic marker, each Carnegie Library in Utah, feeding children a million meals and many more.
My website has gone from mostly historic markers to including much more – historic homes, historic buildings, even non-historic homes and buildings because I started to see how often things get demolished and I thought it would be nice to be able to look back at what a certain place looked like years ago.
I receive many requests for permission to use a photo from this website. If you would like to use one, please contact me for specific permission or a better copy of the photo.
Requests for what other people would like to see documented are welcome, since I travel a lot I am happy to add things and places to my to-do list I can’t promise how soon I’ll get to it but I document something every day. Utah locations will be a little quicker since I live here but I get out to other states fairly often as well.
