Last week, the Summit Land Conservancy announced that it is partnering with the Ogden Valley Land Trust to protect a 1,080-acre property near Huntsville that was once home to a Catholic monastery.

 

The Abbey of Our Lady of the Holy Trinity was a Trappist Cistercian monastery settled in 1947 about 67 miles north of Park City in eastern Weber County. The monks kept bees, farmed and ranched on the land, and they were known for their locally produced creamed honey.

SUMMIT LAND CONSERVANCY

 

Summit Land Conservancy has about five weeks to raise nearly half a million dollars to purchase land near the Weber River. The conservancy has 106 acres of land under contract in Peoa, on Wooden Shoe Lane.

Cheryl Fox is the executive director of the organization. She said they hope to convert the land into a public access nature preserve, by adding trails and access to the river.
