Kanosh
The town site of Kanosh selected by Brigham
Young was surveyed in 1867. The first settlers
were Noah Avery, William Penney and Baldwin
Watts. Upon advice from Brigham Young, families
from Petersburg, Corn Creek, added strength
to the new settlement. C-Nos, a Pahvant Indian
Chief and his tribe of 400 lived in this locality,
hence the name "Kanosh" was given to the place.
This tithing office building, erected in 1870, was
also used as a meeting house. Culbert King was
the first bishop. The Latter-day Saints Church
granted use of the building to the Daughters
of Utah Pioneers in 1952
