I wanted to get over here to document this building and I was just a little too late, it had just been demolished. During World War II parachutes for the military were sewn here and also at the old canning factory a few blocks away.
A few interesting webpages I’ve seen:
- Hundreds of central Utah women worked in parachute factories
- Manti Parachute Plant
- The Manti parachute plant helped save lives during WWII
- Manti National Guard Armory
