1. Smoot Hall at Brigham Young Academy Marker
Inscription.  In 1875, Brigham Young established the Brigham Young Academy with Abraham O. Smoot as president of the Board of Trustees. This building is a replica of Lewis Hall, where the first class of 1876, consisting of just 70 students, were housed. Unfortunately, in 1884, a fire burned down Lewis Hall and a new two-story facility was constructed by Smoot for the Academy. In 1903, the Brigham Young Academy became Brigham Young University.
