First Presbyterian Church of Mt. Pleasant

This late Gothic Revival style building, which features a Norman tower and Tudor window and door bays, was listed in the National Register of historic Places in 1978 as part of the Wasatch Academy Historic District. Duncan J. McMillan, educator and minister of the Presbyterian Church, founded the Wasatch Academy the following month.

The Church and the Academy made important contributions in helping develop a “free school” system, the precursor of Utah’s present public school system. This one-story brick building with cast-stone trim was built in 1922 and dedicated in 1925.
