Old Emery Town Cemetery
Many of the remains of the deceased were moved from this cemetery in the Spring of 1903 to the new cemetery northwest of town. The names below are still here and there may be others with no way to identify them as their markers are gone. Additional information may be obtained at the Emery town office.

This bell was installed in the tower of the Emery Ward Meetinghouse which was dedicated in 1902. The women sold butter and eggs and donated the funds for its purchase. It rang for all occasions – church, funerals, programs, parties, movies and fires. It’s tone was beautiful and could be heard all over town and in surrounding fields.

The Emery LDS Church, built 1898-1900, is the oldest remaining religious building in Emery County. The construction technique, a wood frame sheathed with clapboard and lined with adobe bricks, is distinctive and unusual for turn-of-century Mormon churches. The building’s Greek Revival style is reflected in the symmetrical principal façade, cornice returns, transoms, and pedimented window heads.
This church was constructed under the direction of Bishop Alonzo Brinkerhoff. Services were held in the chapel upon its completion in 1900; the dedication was July 17, 1902 by Apostle Rudger Clawson. The church served the town of Emery until 1956 when a multi-purpose chapel was dedicated. In 1967 the building was purchased by the city for use as a town meeting and recreation hall.
This chapel served the town of Emery until 1956 and is located at 85 North 100 East in Emery, Utah
From 1885 to 1889, the pioneers who located on the Muddy three miles N.E. from the town of Emery built in their poverty, a tunnel 1200 feet long through blue slate rock to bring water to the town. Their only tools were pick and shovel and blasting powder. They hauled dirt out in a two wheeled cart and sank three shafts to hoist dirt in wooden buckets by horse power. Their living quarters were dugouts along the creek.
