1. Manti City Hall Marker
Inscription. November 3, 1873, the Manti City Council under Mayor A. W. Bessey, "Motioned and carried that work on the City Hall be commenced without delay," and May 1, 1882, "The council tendered a vote of thanks to the building committees for their energetic labors in getting a portion of the hall far enough completed to be used by the council." The cost of the building was approximately $1,100. A. E. Merriam drew the plans. George Billings cut and dressed the rock. Andrew Van Buren and Christian Larsen were the masons. John Wilson, John Lemon, Thomas Hoggan, and John Buchanan were the carpenters. William G. Peacock made and erected the flagpole on the roof. The box-like massing, low-pitched hip roof, and bracketed eaves of this building articulate the Italiante style, rarely found in rural Utah. It is one of the oldest remaining city hall buildings in Utah.
 
Erected 1987 by Division of State History. (Marker Number N-894.)
