This cabin is important to Tooele County history because it was the home of Hilda Erickson, the last survivor of 80,000 pioneers who crossed the plains prior to 1869 by handcart or wagon.  She died in 1968 at the age of 108.  Hilda’s monument is featured on the cover of this book and stands in front of Grantsville City Hall.
