Erected in 1893 and opened under the name of Ericksen Meat and Grocery, this building was owned by Henry Ericksen, his brother Alif, and Judge Ferdinand Ericksen. Ferdinand Ericksen was a lawyer and occupied three rooms on the second floor for his law practice. The town doctor, Dr. W.W. Woodring, occupied the other two rooms on the second floor. The building remained in possession of the Ericksen family until 1976.
Built by Architects Niels P. Larsen and G.W. Brand. This building was in bad need of repair and has now had a significant face lift and is a Military memorial. The building was being used as a community recreation center, but the property was in terrible shape.
With the help of a federal grant and professional artists Bryan Spencer, Dean Kleven, and Jason Quinn, the armory now displays a larger-than-life mural of seven U.S. soldiers.(*)
“A school where only out individual best is good enough. Where unity through diversity becomes strength.”
Upon this site in the 1890’s, a large three-story brick school house was built to house grades 1-8. The building was torn down in 1918 when a larger building was built to house both elementary and high school classes.
The bricks used in this marquee came from the three-story brick school house and were unearthed on this site as Parowan High School students prepared the area for the construction.
Parowan High School thanks the following organizations for their contributions and support in constructing the marquee: Iron County School District, Parowan City Corporation, Little Salt Lake Service Club, Parowan Heritage Foundation, Parowan Main Street Program, Little Salt Lake Medical Incorporated, and Parowan High School PTSA.
