The Whites Want Everything: Relations with Utah’s First Peoples lecture given by Will Bagley on Tuesday, November 12th from 5-6 p.m. at the Park City Museum Education and Collections Center located at 2079 Sidewinder Drive.

What would you do if your new neighbors set-up a sawmill and started cutting down the trees in your yard?

Early in 1853, Samuel C. Snyder opened a water-powered sawmill  harnessing White Pine, Red Pine, and Willow creeks near today’s Silver Springs subdivision. On August 15, Ute warriors, who resented the theft and destruction of their timber, killed two of his customers, John Dixon and John Quail, as they hauled lumber to Great Salt Lake City.  Join popular historian Will Bagley on Tuesday, November 12, as he shares a few stories about Utah’s first peoples from his new book, “The Whites Want Everything”.
