What is known as Arbon Valley today was once known as Bannock Valley. There used to be several distinct areas. These were Arbon, Buist, Crystal, Pauline (including West Fork), and Summit.

The following information comes from the wonderful book by Laurie Jean Ward (now Call), titled Bannock Valley. Laurie wrote this at the mature age of twenty-two, publishing it in 1982. She did the research and all the hard work, and gave the Arbon Valley Homestead Project permission to glean her hard work.
