First Public Building

In the year 1878 William Wilson Morrell and William Taylor erected this structure, the first public building in Wayne County. It was 20x30 feet, built of logs, and used by the people of Fremont community as a church, school house and public meeting place. Years later it was moved to the site of the new school house on the public square and used only for church purposes. In 1894 the building was again moved to its present location. Plastered, painted, and covered with siding. It is the home of the Relief Society.
