Ephraim Bank

The bank was organized on November 18, 1905. On December 18, 1905 it was officially registered by Sanpete County and a Utah State Charter was granted on December 30, 1905. The opening must have occurred after January 7, 1906 in the building now occupied by the Anderson Drug Store. On February 2, 1906 the question of a new building was raised. The work on this building started by obtaining the land from J.F. McCafferty and was completed in December 1907 at a cost of not more than $7,000.00. There was a ladies millinery and dress shop in the basement and the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Attorney Hansen were given office space upstairs. The Bank of Ephraim is now the home of Far West Bank.(*)

Ted Bundy Culvert/Cave in American Fork Canyon

One of the many locations rumored to be related to Ted Bundy’s activities in Utah, I’ve heard and read that across this pipe/culvert bridge in American Fork Canyon is the area where he would take some victims.

I didn’t have time to go across today and look for the cave but I’ll try to get back over there soon.

Built as a Carnegie library in 1918, with the funding of $25,000, this one-and-one-half story, L-shaped, brick building with Classical revival detailing was designed by prominent Utah architect Don Carlos Young and built by the Ashton Improvement Company. The library was named after Annie E. Chapman, who served as the first librarian of the Salt Lake City Public Library System.
