There’s No Other Historical Landmark In Utah Quite Like This 92-Year-Old Tree
Utah has many unique landmarks, both natural and man-made, and quite a few of them are instantly recognizable. Delicate Arch is well-known all over the world, as is the Great Salt Lake, and everyone knows exactly where to find the Bingham Canyon Mine, which is the largest open-mine pit in the world.
There’s a much smaller, and lesser-known historical landmark in Provo — a historic tree that sits on the grounds of the Historic Utah County Courthouse. It’s a natural landmark, but one man certainly had a hand in its creation.
