Water-Wheel

The water-wheel is located in Brigham Young Historic Park, just a couple of blocks east of the Mormon temple in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.  The park is a memorial to the pioneer religious and civic leader who brought his flock from the eastern states in the mid-1800s, seeking a place where they could practice their faith without scrutiny or conflict….  I have read that the park was established on land that was once part of Young’s family farm…choice land that is just across the street from City Creek, the initial and primary source of drinking and irrigation water for the Mormon pioneers when they settled in the Salt Lake Valley.
