As the Mormons settled in Utah in the middle of the 19th Century under the direction of Brigham Young they began to disperse north, south, east and west to build colonies of small communities. St. George was the closest place where L.D.S. couples who lived in Arizona or other southern areas could travel to be married in the temple there. In those days the treck would take several weeks and of course they were chaperoned.
