Duncan's Retreat, a small settlement located on the north bank of the Rio Virgin, about four miles east of Virgin City, was first settled in 1861 by Chapman Duncan and others. Fertile lands skirting the river were taken possession of, but were flooded by the action of the high water in the river; then most of the settlers became discouraged and moved away. Others moved in until the place contained about a dozen families. The name of the place was suggested from the fact that the first settler, Chapman Duncan, retreated to other parts of the country after the floods during the winter of 18611862. In 1864 William Theobald was placed over the group as presiding elder, but in 1866 the place was temporarily vacated because of Indian troubles, but resettled in 1868 when William Martindale presided. In April 1891 Duncan's Retreat was a small branch of the Virgin Ward, but continued floods caused the place to be abandoned. In 1930 nothing was left except fragments of the foundations of several houses and three pear trees still bearing fruit. The present federal highway passes directly over the site where formerly stood the Duncan's Retreat L.D.S. meetinghouse.
