Built in 1932 as the Robison Motel and later renamed the Spinning Wheel Motel. I heard the classic sign has been there since the 1960s.
65 South Main Street in Fillmore, Utah
There is a monument out in front of the building with the old bell and a couple of plaques, one with history and one with the names of the war veterans.
The history plaque says:
Leamington was first settled in 1871, the town was named by Frank Young, who immigrated from Leamington, England.
The Medallion was given to the town which came off a English Ship named Leamington.
On January 9, 1883 the Leamington L.D.S. Ward was organized with Lars Nielson as Bishop and Wm. H. Walker and Benedict P. Textorious as Counselors.
In 1886 a building was constructed by Nicholas Paul, it was used as school and church. Millard County furnished the bell which was put in the tower, it cracked the 3rd time it was rang.
On February 27, 1899 one & one fifth acres of ground was sold to Leamington Ward and the Relief Society for the sum of $30.00 by B.P. and Josephine Textorious.
In 1903 a church building began with bricks from the old smelter. The building was finished in 1910 and dedicated June 1911 by Francis M. Lyman.
The Bell then was placed in the tower of the new building and served the community each Sunday morning for many years.
In 1952 the Bell was taken down by the Leamington Boy Scout Troop No. 149. It was welded and repaired by Wm. Stanley Bradfield and reinstalled. It was in service for some time, when the church was remodeled in 1970 the bell was taken down and put into storage.
This plaque was donated and paid for by the Anderson Reunion Organization.
The monument originator and White Stone donated by Wm. Stanley Bradfield. A new chapel was built in 1986 at another location. The City of Leamington purchased this Historic Building ad Amusement Hall, with four acres of land and two shares of water.
Topaz 1942 – 1946
Central Utah WRA Relocation Center
Fifteen miles west at Abraham is the location of the bleak desert site of a concentration camp, one of ten in Western America, in which 110,000 persons of Japanese ancestry were interned against their will during World War II. They were the victims of wartime hysteria, racial animosity, and economic opportunism on the West Coast.
Confined behind barbed wire fence and guarded by armed sentries ad held for no justifiable reason, the internees, two-thirds of whom were American citizens, and the majority of whom were women and children, not only endured the bitter physical discomforts of the desert heat and cold, but sustained a shocking affront to their sense of justice and fair play and human dignity. May this grim episode of basic American principles gone astray remind us to work for understanding and goodwill and justice in an enlightened America today.
The former residents of Topaz remember with grateful appreciation the friendliness and understanding with which the people of Delta received us during the period of our trial and despair.
