In memory of those who lost their lives in the explosion of the steamboat "Saluda" on April 9, 1852. Many of whom are buried here in a common grave. The total loss of life was never definitely determined but was estimated at about one hundred, as many were blown into the river and lost. Most of the casualties were Mormon converts enroute to Salt Lake City from Great Britain.
