Big Cottonwood Canyon Trail

On July 1, 1877, the Granite Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was created. The residents of both the Granite and Butlerville communities were included. Since most of the people were settling near the mouth of the two canyons, a chapel was built halfway between the two towns. James Muir, William Thompson, and Andrew Hansen Sr. were the committee chosen to oversee the construction. Building began January 20, 1886, and was completed for dedication on July 1, 1892. Granite rock from Little Cottonwood Canyon was used to construct the chapel, which was oval-shaped and approximately 30 feet by 40 feet. The building was located at about 8600 South Wasatch Boulevard on the west side of the street. The location did not work out; the Granite Ward was divided on March 12, 1901, and the new Butler Ward was created. This left the Granite-Butler building vacant. Most of the stones used to build the building were eventually hauled away by residents in the area.
