    Hey, I live right by this one! Haha, we have activities here all the time. By chance, do you know anything about the church well that shares a place on that property? I’ve always wanted to know the history of it.

    • I don’t, but I was quite surprised to see a well there, and even more surprised to see several people getting water from it while I was there. I also noticed a ‘Pioneer Relic Cabin’ behind the chapel that probably has an interesting story as well. It looks like a re-build of an older cabin that was done in 1934 and is run by the Daughters of Utah Pioneers. And there is also another (inoperable) well next to the cabin. Quite a lot to research on that one block!

    The listed year of construction is not correct. Also, the north wing was added in 1951 and the south in the 1970s. The cabin on the north east corner of the property is owned by the DUP. Across the street to the north east is B.H. Roberts Young Men Meeting Hall.
