Located at 191 North Main St in Manti, Utah this is one of the oldest remaining city hall buildings in the state of Utah.
Designed by A.E. Merriam this building was constructed between 1873-1882. It is an excellent example of the Italianate style rarely found outside Salt Lake City. Fine Italianate details such as box-like massing, low-pitched hipped roof, columned portico and decorative bracketed eaves make it the only surviving example of the style in public structure in Sanpete County.
The plan has four equal size rooms on each floor, with a central passageway staircase. Under the stucco lies finely tooled limestone. It is hoped that the exterior will one day be restored to its historic appearance. The construction costs total about $1,100.
The building is now used as a Manti Museum, Social Hall, and office of Sanpete County Economic Development & Travel and Tourism and houses a visitor’s information center.
This building is a Neo-Classical style and was built before 1905. H.P. Larson owned it and he sold it to D.W. Anderson in 1910. It has been the Anderson Drug Store ever since. If you have time walk inside and note the original ceiling and the two old signs on the back wall.(*)
The PIONEER HERITAGE GARDEN is located at the foot of the Manti Temple on the north end of Manti City next to the Pioneer Cemetery. Manti City boasts the most beautiful entrance to town in all of Utah.
The 2.24 acre site is part of the largest green space along the entire length of Heritage Highway 89. Manti’s beautiful gateway is framed by the Manti Temple, the Pioneer Cemetery and the Pioneer Heritage Gardens.
The Pioneer Heritage Gardens includes a reflecting pond, amphitheater, statue, interpretive pathways emphasizing pioneer stories and values. Come and ponder for a while.
From what I can tell Christianburg was a town in Sanpete County between Gunnison and Mayfield originally settled in 1873 and named for the Christiansen brothers: Julius, Theodore, and Titus, who were the first to settle there with their families.

of the United States of America
and sponsored by the Utah American Revolution Bicentennial Commission
and Manti Camp of D.U.P, Dr. Ruth M. Graham
and other donorsConstructed about 1854 by John Patton, Jr., this house was built of rock from the temple hill just five years after arrival of the first settlers. Patton served as militiaman, legislator, sheriff, farmer and inventor of agricultural implements.
The John Patten House was constructed c.1854 of limestone. John Patten came to Utah in 1850 and settled in Manti. He was active in community affairs serving as a representative to the Utah Territorial Legislature, Sheriff of Sanpete County and a member of the City Council. The vernacular style house is an excellent example of early pioneer stone construction in Utah. The house was acquired May 23, 1976 with the assistance of a grant from the Utah Bicentennial Commission and the help of Dr. Ruth Graham, a descendant of John Patten.
