Big Cottonwood Canyon Trail

Mormon pioneers followed their church's teachings of donating one-tenth of their annual increase to the Church. Because cash was scarce, people most often paid their tithing with goods they had grown or produced. The contributions were collected and stored at the Tithing House and then distributed as needed to those in the community. For a time, the Tithing House was also used as a collection place for rags being sold to the Deseret News Company for use in the paper mill. Rags were brought to the Tithing House and exchanged for scrip. The original Tithing House was located in the "Old Mill" area. The Tithing House was eventually moved to the Butler Bench and located between the farms of Bishop Alva Butler and Asa Maxfield. The building was moved again and was preserved for many years at the Cowley residence on 7000 South.
