Inscription.  Built of red sandstone from the mountains near Heber City, this building was used for school and church meetings. The year 1890 brought about Utah's Free School Law, but before 1890, teachers received their salary as a result of students' tuition. With money being scarce, teachers were often paid in lumber, produce, and other material goods. Sometimes parents even boarded the teacher as a means of tuition payment.
