Saga of the Sanpitch

I'd Rather be Playing! on June 21st, 2010

The Saga of the Sanpitch is a collection of stories and poems about early settlers to the Sanpete Valley and Central Utah.  From 1969 to 1998, 30 volumes of the Saga of the Sanpitch were published. A scanned copy of the entire publication has been available online for quite sometime, however,  it has been fairly difficult to search.

Sanpete County Travel and Heritage Council is in the process of making all 30 volumes available in .pdf.  This will allow historians and descendants to quickly search for desired information.  The first 7 issues have been placed online and the remaining volumes will be posted as soon as they are converted into electronic format.

Manti Historic City Hall

I'd Rather be Playing! on May 16th, 2008

Manti Historic City HallManti is a pioneer community of great historic significance with the beautiful LDS temple built in 1888 and over 100 century-old homes still standing. Manti’s first city hall, built in 1875, has been restored after years of volunteer work.

With interior restoration completed, the Historic City Hall now houses a tourist information center and a local museum as well as a social hall on the second floor which is used for small wedding receptions, luncheons and other civic meetings. It is the home of the Sanpete County office of economic development and tourism. The exterior of the building is now being restored with new trim around the windows. Eventually the stucco may be removed to reveal the limestone underneath. http://restoremanti.org

getting together with yesterday

I'd Rather be Playing! on April 23rd, 2008

I saw a copy of a Sanpete County book in a Salt Lake library. The title was “Getting Together with Yesterday”. It features drawings of historic homes and buildings. I have roots in Sanpete and would like to take a tour of these buildings. As a senior citizen, I would prefer coming with a tour group. Are there any tour buses in the Salt Lake area who work with senior citizen centers in organizing tours to visit Sanpete? If so, please post on this site for my information. Thanks.
