Settlers came from Utah in 1883 and settled at different places along Sand Creek. Joseph Smith Mulliner, C.J. Owens and others built houses. They began fencing the land and made water ditches. When the Eagle Rock and Willow Creek Canal Company was organized most of them subscribed for stock in the company and went to work in earnest to construct a canal to convey the water from Snake river into the natural channel of Willow Creek. The total population of the Iona Precinct was 824 in 1930.
