Historic landmark in a out of the way place! Several buildings of John Jarvie's Trading Post

3 years ago

John Jarvie operated a trading post and a ferry here on the banks of the Green River. The area was known as Brown's Hole, and later as Brown's Park. Because is was very close to three states, outlaws were known to frequent the area. John was shot in the back just outside his trading post. Very interesting!
