This plaque talks about the old Carnegie Library:
Murray City Vine Street Public Library
As early as 1900, a collection of books was made by a women’s club. This club maintained a library reading room in a home until 1912
In 1912, with the donation of the women’s club’s 515 books valued at $1,000.00, and through a petition, one mill was levied for a public library. A room in the original city hall was used for this purpose.
In 1915, the Carnegie Foundation, together with the city furnished $21,129.00 for the building of the original library. The board of education had donated the ground and the building was built in 1915.
In 1970 through action of present and former library board members, city officials and a united community effort, funds were raised for the present addition.

On this site, from 1947 to 1970, Cannon and Dura Jensen owned and operated “The Karot Café”. The Café, named for the area supporting an abundant carrot crop and the local High School’s yearbook “The Karot,” served the community as a neighborhood store selling household necessities, gasoline and auto service. The Café served fresh homemade meals, breads and pies to the local townspeople, Highway Patrol Officers, truckers and migrant workers.
Dura Jensen preferred the use of a wood stove in the Café when preparing her famous pies. The Jensens supported their seven children from the Cafe’s revenues. In addition to being well known for delicious pies and meals, the Jensens were also known for their kindness in providing many meals to indigent travelers.
The Café was razed in 1970 for the expansion of Highway 89.
In 1859, after helping settle San Bernardino California, Moses Harris moved his family to Utah and settled on the Virgin River near Quail Creek. In 1862 a flood forced the settlers further up Quail Creek to the Cottonwood Creek fork. Due to the many large rocks in the area the settlers built their homes and barns of stone. Rocks gathered while clearing their land for planting were used to establish property lines, leaving several miles of stone fences. By 1864 there were sixteen families totaling 128 people living here. In 1868 the population was about 200 people. Many worked at the Silver Reef mines and mills. By 1892 repeated flooding had driven away all but six families.
