Cove Fort Historical Site
  Carvel G. and Sister Lois Jackson
Directors, February 1993 - February 1995

Carvel G. and Sister Lois Jackson from Mesa, Arizona was called to be the first directors of Cove Fort Historical Site.

Church President Gordon B. Hinckley called them into his office where he expressed his concerns about them getting lonely all by themselves way out in Cove Fort. Elder Jackson said, “Wow, is that all you are worried about? Lois and I are good friends and we like each other, you donít have to worry about that.&lrquo; This proved to be true. They enjoyed their time together and kept very busy during the winter cleaning all the rooms and dishes at the Fort in between visiting with all the people who stopped by to see the fort.

During the summer time they had many service missionaries who drove to the fort everyday from Beaver, Central City, Delta, Fillmore, Flowell, Holden, Kanosh, Meadow, Monroe, Oak City, Richfield, and Scipio. Cove Fort brought all those missionaries together in a common purpose and in its own way helped unify three different counties. They had wonderful experiences at Cove Fort with the missionaries they served with.
