The dedication of the Eliza R. Snow monument and rose garden on October 6, 1956: The ladies of South Utah County, attired in pioneer dresses and bonnets, provided a choral selection, “Those Pioneers,” and then Bryant S. Hinckley, noted speaker and writer, addressed the audience. He told of events in Eliza R. Snow’s life and talked about meeting her when he was eleven years old. He had good memories of the encounter because she let him touch a watch which once belonged to Joseph Smith and then testified that she was the wife of the Prophet.
