At Hole in the Rock pioneers on their way to San Juan County built a road down steep cliffs to the Colorado River.  For a long time, crossing the Colorado River by boat at Lee's Ferry was the easiest way to cross the river.  Kanab had the first all-woman mayor and city council in the United States.  So many movies have been made in Kane County that Kanab  became known in the 1930's as "Little Hollywood".
