Deseret Iron Company Account Book (UT) Free

Iron workers and others associated with the ill-fated iron works at what is now Cedar City, Utah, were paid on account, due to a shortage of currency in the frontier community.

The mission ultimately failed due to poor weather, hostile Indians, and unforeseen manufacturing problems.
