In 1908 the townsite of Elmo was laid out. Each summer a bowery was erected east of
this site where social events were held. In 1911 a group of men purchased the Cleveland
schoolhouse, dragged it with teams and logs to the bowery lot. It was rebuilt and used for
school, church and other gatherings. George H. Oviatt was named first L.D.S. Bishop June
10, 1913. In 1926 the original owners presented the building to the church. It was razed in 1957.
