My name is Shirlene Jensen and I am the host of Bear Lake County. I am native to this wonderful county and even though I don't live here now, I have a great love for my former home. We are proud to be part of the Idaho GenWeb group. I will be updating and adding lots of wonderful new things. And if you have something you would like to see added please email me!
Lake Valley was settled September 26, 1863 by
forty Mormon pioneer families from
Cache Valley, Utah.
