Description PAPERS THAT CAME -- AND MANY THAT WENT ton. Both were founded for the purpose of touting the real estate possibilities of the western Cache Valley community. The candid commentary of Cache historian A. J. Sim-monds explains it well: "Beginning in 1907 and continuing for 10 years, the town of Trenton was the scene of runaway land speculation.
