*1919 - As the Latter-day Saint population increased in numbers in Lost River Valley, and the Lost River country being so far and distinct from the other wards in the Blackfoot Stake of Zion, located in the great Snake River Valley, it was deemed wise on the part of the authorities of the Church to divide the Blackfoot Stake by separating the settlements on Big Lost River from said stake and organizing them into a new stake of Zion. This was done at a conference of the Blackfoot Stake held Aug. 18, 1919, by taking the wards of Arco and Moore from the Blackfoot Stake and the branches of Leslie, Darlington, Pass Creek (later Ballard Ward) and Chilly, from the Northwestern States Mission and organizing them into the Lost River Stake.
