First Chapel – School Building
Circa 1899

The community greatly appreciated the chapel-school built on this site – previous school classes and church services were held in homes or in a tent. Known as the First Chapel-School, the building was erected by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with lumber hauled over the mountains from Block Rock by way of Elbow Canyon.
