Threshing Machine Canyon


category : Pioneer Life
In 1867, a party of travelers were transporting three threshing machines belonging to Brigham Young along the Smoky Hill Trail. While encamped at the base of the cliff, the party was attacked by Indians, who killed all of the men and put the threshing machines to the torch. Pieces of these machines were later found by early settlers.
