"On August 2, 1831, the Prophet Joseph Smith and others assisted the Colesville Saints in placing the first log as a foundation for the establishment in Zion. It was done at the site of the building which was to be both a school and a church. A ten inch oak was cut and carried to the designated location by 12 men representing the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Among those who participated were Joseph Smith, Oliver Cowdery, Sidney Rigdon, Hezekiah Peck, Ezekiel Peck, JOSEPH KNIGHT SR., Aaron Culver, Ezra Booth, Freeborn Demill, William Stringham, and Ira Willis" The first marker was dedicated in 1963. In 2000 a restored marked was dedicated.
