Wolf Ranch

A Civil War veteran, John Wesley Wolf, and his son Fred moved to Utah from Ohio and built this one-room cabin in the late 1800's -- which is strong evidence that he didn't like Ohio very much. He had a little more than 100 acres along Salt Wash, which barely had enough grass for a few cattle. In 1906 his daughter Flora Stanley and her husband and children moved here but were shocked at the primitive conditions. John was persuaded to put a wooden floor in the cabin, but they all abandoned the cabin in 1910 and returned to Etna, Ohio where John died three years later at the age of 84.
