Old Social Hall
In 1888 the men and boys of this community
brought material from the mountains and
built a hall on this spot of ground. They
formed a company and rented the hall.
The L.D.S. Church purchased the building
when Jasper N. Robertson was first Bishop.
It was used for church, school, and
recreation sixty-three years. The hall
was razed in 1952. The bell was procured
by Charles Oliphant in 1889 and hung in the
belfry where it tolled for fires, time,
funerals, and all special occasions.
