Site of Battle Between U.S. Army Soldiers and Ute Indians
See also: Civil War Skirmish at Pleasant Grove
This rock monument, built in 1930 on the 80th anniversary of the settling of Pleasant Grove, commemorates the Sunday morning of 12 April 1863 attack by Indians on Colonel Conners army troops. The battle occured outside the fort wall, and from within and near the John Green house, which was situated one block south of the wall, probably at this site.
On the afternoon of 13 September 1930, townspeople traveled by caravan to this and 5 other historic sites in town to hear a bugle call, brief histories of each site and band music at each stop. This appears to be the only existing monument left of the six erected in 1930.
R. Spencer Hines, a pharmacist who made his money in the Tintic mines, constructed this building in 1885 as a drug store and saloon (The Palace) and rebuilt it to its present shape in 1890. Hines was a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.), the first fraternal order formed in Provo, an organization which utilized the second floor of this building during 1890-93. In 1893 the second floor was rebuilt to create a rooming house. The drug store continued in operation and eventually became known as Hedquist Drug Store, Ivan’s Drug, Stone Drug, Sanitary Cafe, Cozy Cafe and Provo Pharmacy. Restaurants, such as the Vienna Cafe, have operated in the former saloon area.

I’ve always got a kick out of visiting filming locations for movies and TV shows. I decided to start collecting pictures I take at locations and match them up with pictures of scenes from the movies/shows. Visit this page for more.
The movie Brigham City (2001) was mostly filmed in Mapleton and Springville, Utah which is where I grew up. I remember watching them film it, Richard Dutcher wrote and directed it and lived next door to me at the time ( I was 15-16 years old) and invited me and some friends to be extras but we didn’t think it was “cool” and said no. I regret that, it would be cool to see now. I do know many of the extras in the movie.
Some of the scenes I’ve matched up:
The bridge near the mouth of Hobble Creek Canyon on the Mapleton/Springville line.
