Who pays for the marker and monument? ISDUP pays for the cost of the 16″ x 22″ plaque. The Camp or Company pays for the cost of establishing a monument for mounting the plaque.
What does ISDUP mark? ISDUP marks important historical events, locations, or objects which date to the pioneer period. The pioneer period generally begins in 1847, when pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley and ends at the conclusion of the colonization era, which is generally considered 1900. The marker must have important historical significance and meet ISDUP Marker Policy and Criteria.
