The Pioneer

Latter Day Saint pioneers were not the first pioneers, but without question the most influential pioneers of the Bear Lake valley. Led by Charles C. Rich into the Bear Lake valley in September of 1863 establishing the fledgling community of Paris, Idaho. Other nearby communities like Garden City and Laketown were quickly established within the next few years. Accounts are told of hearty pioneers struggling with the harsh and diverse climate. The valley soon prospered as a farming and ranching area.
The Pioneer Yurt attempts to honor their determination.
