The Arrowhead Trail

posted Feb 1, 2016, 12:41 PM by Aaron Baker

On Tuesday, February 16, 2016 at 6 p.m., the Virgin Valley Heritage Museum will host a lecture at City Hall by Dr. Edward Leo Lyman. This lecture is the second of three and is titled “The Arrowhead Trail.” Lyman will share insights into the development of the Arrowhead Trail, Highway 91 and Interstate 15.

The event is free and open to the public.

The concluding lecture in the series will be about Chief Tosho on April 19, 2016 at City Hall.

Dr. Edward Leo Lyman has been a history buff his whole life. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Riverside and is an emeritus professor of history. He taught history for over 50 years with a particular interest in transportation from Utah to California. Early transportation routes involving Mesquite included pack mule trains, automobiles and the railroad in Meadow Valley, Nevada. Lyman has written two books about wagon travel — “The Arduous Road, The Most Difficult Wagon Road in American History” and “Overland Journey, The Wagon Road from the City of the Saints to the City of Angels.” He has also written articles about the Arrowhead Highway, the first automobile highway from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles, which have been published in Utah, Nevada and California historical quarterly journals. Lyman is currently writing a book on the Southern Paiute Tribe, including the history of Moapa Paiute Chief Tosho, whose home village was in the Mesquite area from 1850-1870. Lyman currently resides in Silver Reef, Utah.
