|Photo of Wight's Fort Cemetery|
|The Wight’s Fort Cemetery was located on this site after the pioneers had discovered the grave of an Indian baby. Lyman and Harriet Bateman Wight buried their first-born child near the Indian Grave. Later John Irving buried his twenty-one year old son William Irving here. From that point, the area became a community burial ground. There are many unmarked graves. The largest tree in the northeast corner was planted by Aminta Bateman Egbert, wife of John A. Egbert (Bishop of the West Jordan Ward for many years). Both are buried here.|
