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 historic what I find and hope you find some value in it.

I have goals that keep me entertained like trying to visit each place in Utah, each county in the U.S., and trying to photograph each D.U.P. historic marker.

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.

    • Thanks! I appreciate you taking a look. I’d be happy to send you what you need. My contact info is above.

    • Hello Jacob, We are searching for any historical information on Wanship UT and the Blue Sky area in particular. Do you know where i could find any archive photos for Coalville and the settlements in Wanship so we can populate the Lobby “time capsule” area with historical books and pictures and artifacts relevant to the Summit County area with particular focus on the Wanship, Coalville, Hoytsville area? Thank you!

    Hello, Jacob ~
    Thank you for your research. I wanted to give you a little correction on the home you indicated was owned by William J. & Lizzie Cullimore. That home, in fact, was built by their son, Luke Charles Cullimore, (my grandfather). William J. & Lizzie lived at the bottom of the Lindon Hill, believe it was Gillmore St. The mercantile (Cullimore Mercantile) was owned by William J.’s brother, Alfred J. Cullimore. Thank you again for your valuable research.

    Hi Jacob, I was randomly looking on the internet and saw your picture of Dolly’s house (FT Alma marker) in your blog. My family lived there around 1975, it brought back many memories. I am glad to see the closeup pic of the monument, I forgot what it said. Thanks!
