Old Rock Church
Erection of the first L.D.S. Church in Salina
was commenced in 1864 when rocks were hauled
from a quarry two miles away. Soren Neilson,
a stonecutter, supervised the work. When
the structure was built to the square, the
people used it as a fort. Because of the
Black Hawk War the building was not completed
until 1871. One large room, 64 x 32 feet, was
later divided. It served the community for
church, school and other gatherings. This
bell atop the monument called the people
together on every occasion.
