Name Rock is a minor landmark about ten miles southwest of Church Butte.
It is a low sandstone cliff located at what may have been a campground as
there is evidence of springs in the vicinity. The trail here has been
largely obliterated by the construction of old U.S. 30 which is now a wide,
graded, gravel road that sees heavy traffic generated by the current boom in
natural gas production. This site, of course, is on the trail to Fort
Bridger and is located between the Wyoming towns of Granger and Lyman.
There are about twenty inscriptions, mostly done in tar, on the Rock,
dating from the later trail era of the 1860s. The site of Millersville, a
long vanished settlement of that era, is nearby.
