I was just looking through a historical book about the avenues and noticed that it said Saltair was originally developed by Nephi W. Clayton, anybody happen to know more details on what his involvement with Saltair was?

Quite a bit actually. There is a whole section of my book dedicated about him. To say he originally developed the resort is kind of over simplifying the truth. He was president of the company for a time and the resorts first manager though so I can see how it could be confused and said he was the one to originally develop the resort.

Cool, thanks! I look forward to it. He's a great uncle. I had no idea about this until now. I have a lot of relatives.

Sweet! Did you find the snack bar menus, or the schematics for the roller coaster chain drive, or what?

Unfortunately no, but I do have a few menus from the ship Cafe already found.

No this Jackpot has to do with a section of the book that will go over the resorts that came before Saltair. Tonight's discovery deals with the Lake Point resort.

Oh it so is. I knew how the resort had started and ended but did not have specifics but just theories I had come up with based on the facts I had discovered. This information validates and proves my theories on the resort.
