We were driving from St. George to Ely, Nevada, when I saw the sign on the side of the road. While I had some vague idea that this event occured in southwestern Utah, I had forgotten where. Serendipity led to this side trip.

The site is just off to the west of Utah State Highway 18, between Enterprise and Central, northwest of St. George, Utah.

Click on one of the small pictures below to see a much larger version of the photo.

There is a very large panorama of the area, too.

There have been many books written about this incident. There are a couple of movies, too.
Here are just some of the many websites related to the site:

Here is a Google map which shows the Mountain Massacre lookout & memorial next to Utah State Route 18. The road going toward the bottom of the map leads to the burial site.
