History of Spring City, Utah

If, as has been claimed, Sanpete County possesses Utah's greatest treasury of architecturally significant buildings from the pioneer and early twentieth century eras, then Spring City is its crown jewel. The town's wealth of impressive structures is due to its talented early designers and builders, as well as to the fact that the population decreased in every decade from 1900 to 1970, reducing the need to destroy older structures. Spring City's remarkable LDS meetinghouse, or tabernacle, and city hall--both limestone edifices--and its spectacular Victorian elementary school and bishop's storehouse--both of brick--are among its most important public buildings. The unique Greek Revival "endowment house," Schofield store, Orson Hyde house, Behunin, Monson, Johnson, and Ericksen residences--all of fine masonry construction--also are outstanding. In addition, Spring City possesses a good collection of early log, adobe, and frame structures, including several "urban" barns and other agricultural and livestock outbuildings--many of which sit within a few hundred feet of Main Street.
