  A strange mound of earth in the middle of an open plain, this strange formation is also knownWhj Photograph taken 1870 as Grindstone Butte and Brigham’s Peak. It was called "Pyramid" on T. H. Jefferson’s 1846 map. Because of its unusual formation, many emigrants noted this spot. It is frequently said that Brigham Young climbed atop this mound to deliver a sermon on his return to Winter quarters in 1847. The noted Mormon historian, Will Bagley, says this never happened, depriving this curious little butte of its most exalted claim.
