Etta Barton and her son, Allen, posed for photographer Lewis Hellebust in this 1910 photograph. Etta homesteaded two miles west of Craig to be near her son. This photograph taken in her small house shows that she was determined to make her home as pretty as possible. By 1920, both Etta and her son had left the area.

David Moffat never stepped foot inside the county that would eventually bear his name. In fact, the industrial tycoon wasn’t much concerned with the area. Rather, he merely wanted his railroad to pass through Craig on its way to Salt Lake City. But, the endeavor left Moffat nearly broke and halted the line in Craig.
