City Hall – Minersville UT

Description

“One such building was the Minersville City Hall funded in Beaver County by FERA. It was built in 1935 to house the town’s post office, library, municipal offices, and Daughters of the Utah Pioneers camp. To save costs, stone for the hall was brought from a demolished building of the old Murdock Academy, which had been standing empty since 1922. Civilian Conservation Corps crews dismantled and hauled the stone to Minersville.”

  1. There used to be an artesian well fountain in front the Minersville post office when I was growing up. We lived on a farm 5 miles northwest of Minersville and our only source for drinking water was the fountain in front of the post office. We would take several 10gal. Milk cans and fill them at the fountain. We did this in all seasons of the year until 1950 when we drilled our own well.
