Pottery Shop
In 1893 Ephraim H. Roberts, a war veteran,
built a pottery here. He and his sons made
churns, jars, jugs, and flower pots, which
were exchanged for produce. Five hundred
samples of clay were tried before a suitable
one was found. Lead for glazing dug from
a clay bank on the rifle range at Fort Duchesne.
Later the building was used for an amusement
center known as "Old Roberts Hall". In
1920 it was moved to Davis Ward where it
served as a church and recreation hall. It
was razed in 1936.
