Original Settlers Plaque
With reverence, this monument is created to acknowledge the lives of the pioneer families who sacrificed, endured, and enjoyed life, while establishing this community of Herriman. Through the years from 1851 to 1871, nearly 100 different families came to this corner of the Salt Lake Valley. Some were here for only a few months, others a few years, and a handful lived out their lives in Herriman. All made commitments of time, energy, and resources that allowed the settlement to grow and prosper. It is hoped that this tribute to these families will inspire and encourage residents of Herriman and other places to reflect with gratitude upon the spirit of unity, support, and brotherhood these pioneer families left as a legacy. We pay respect to these early settlers.
