Fruitland
(Bh Dlid - Burned Bread)

Fruitland was originally established as a Mormon farming community in the early 1880s and early maps show the vicinity as Burnhams. The name Bh Dlid was derived from Navajos observing a Mormon burning a batch of bread. Fruitland is located on the north side of the San Juan River 18 miles east of Shiprock on U.S. Highway 550. The mesa south of Fruitland was recommended as an irrigation project for the Navajos in 1892.
