Two years later a building used for church, school and recreation was erected by James Nye and others, of logs hauled from George Sirrine's sawmill It was 20' X 60' with two large rooms and a stage at one end. Later an annex, balcony and belfry were added. In 1870 the first ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized, Henry D. Horne, Bishop. Thomas Sleight and Louis Ricks taught school. This bell rang for assembly until 1942.
