The Tithing Lot and Relief Society Hall
Tithing lot - Pioneer William Robb Jr.
built a rock house, consisting of two rooms
with a cellar, diagonally across the
stret from this location. It was later
sold to The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints and became the Titihing Office about
1890. In addition to the collection of tithes and offerings,
the building was used for Thursday night prayer meetings
and the monthly Thursday Fast Day meeting. Two
granaries were built on the lot to store grain turned
in as tithing. A large barn, a cattle corral, a
large set of scales and a stationary hay bailer
were added to the lot.
Relief Society Hall - On this corner once
stood the Relief Society Hall which had been
constructed in 1869 in another part of town and later
moved here. The first Relief Society president was Eliza
A. Barton. Due to crowded conditions in the Old White
Church, which was used for school, students used the
Relief Society Hall for the first five grades. This building
was later sold and moved.
