Ben had a meat wagon that he would take all over the Valley, selling his meat from the wagon. He used ice cut from the second river ice was packed and saved for use during the warm months of the year. It is said that Ben Wood, prior owner of Woods Market, was an affable, gregarious person whose fun personality attracted many people to him. He was an excellent storyteller, an attribute that he passed on to his sons. He played the violin and was an accomplished actor for many plays that were produced in the Valley for the entertainment of the whole community. His son Sterling B. Wood was a lifelong resident of the Valley, and mayor of the mountain community for 12 years. These two were key pioneers of the Valley, having been descended from one of the first settlers who came with Jefferson Hunt, who was sent by the LDS prophet Brigham Young. Their descendents still live in Huntsville today. According to Jeff and Bonnie Hyde of Bonnie & Hyde Inc., they are restoring and developing Trappers Village into a property that will enhance and compliment the historic town. “It is our goal to create a peaceful experience that includes dining and shopping while, embracing a quiet mountain atmosphere. A place that gives people a feeling of ‘Those were the days,’ a place where people vow to return to time and again.” For more information, visit www.trappersvillage.com or call 540-9553.
