This Is the Place Professional Review and Guide
"Five of the most significant words in the settlement of the American West—“this is the right place”—were uttered here, from a vantage near the mouth of Emigration Canyon. Today, This Is the Place Monument and the encompassing This Is the Place Heritage Park, on Salt Lake City’s high east side, commemorate the arrival on July 24, 1847, of Brigham Young, whom colleagues recorded as saying those famous words."
--Lynn Arave Ray Boren, Walking Salt Lake City (Wilderness Press).
