|The Craig Cabin and tack shed are believed to be constructed by an early trapper from Salt Lake City, Utah, and his two nephews sometime between 1898 and 1900. Typical of the time, these buildings were erected on public domain land prior to the establishment of the U.S. Forest Service. A homestead entry had not been filed for the construction of the Craig Cabin. The individuals who built these structures did so without the knowledge or approval from the General Land Office, who controlled public domain lands at that time. The three men, whose names are unknown, used the cabin as personal housing while trapping fur animals in area rivers and streams. One fall, believed by locals to be around 1900, the uncle left the cabin with the furs to sell with plans to return with supplies. He never came back and it is not known what became of him. With their supplies depleted, the younger nephews somehow made it through the deep snows that winter to a local ranch in Bondurant where they arranged for their return to Salt Lake City. They never came back to the area, abandoning the cabin. This information is hearsay, yet comes from the oral histories from older individuals, Jake Pfisterer and Eileen Fronk Dockham, who were born and raised in the area. They knew Jack Craig and the area history.
