The Friends of Historic Spring City are pleased to announce our annual Spring City Heritage Day, on Saturday, May 28, 2016. This event includes a tour of many of the town’s charming, mid-19th Century pioneer homes and buildings, including the Old Spring City School, which has been under intensive restoration for the past three years!

Funds benefit preservation and restoration efforts in Spring City. Currently the Friends are working to raise money to pay for the loan portion of a Community Impact Board (CIB) grant/loan that Spring City  was awarded. The Friends have currently raised more than $200,000 toward the loan of $325,000.

 This beautiful old structure is now in the second phase of renovation, including final selection and installation of interior fixtures, finishes and woodwork.  Once completed, the Old School will serve as a community center and city office space.  The second floor will include a large ballroom for receptions and community programs, plus art and cultural events.  A Wall of Honor, comprised of engraved plaques, will be displayed as a permanent show of gratitude to all those who have made substantial contributions to the restoration of this magnificent building.  (Plaques may honor donors, their ancestors, or even stand as a memorial to an individual or family.)  Look for the Friends of Historic Spring City kiosk, where you can ask any questions or make Wall of Honor donations.The Old Spring City School is the current major project which has made significant progress in the past year.

We anticipate the Old School Community Center to be ready for for occupants, including Spring City Offices and the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers (DUP) by fall of 2016.

Spring City leads the way in historic preservation and restoration in Utah.  The town was designated a national historic district in the late 1970s, and since that official designation, over 50 of our local historical structures have been lovingly restored.

You can find Spring City just off  Utah State Highway (USH) 89 on USH 117 between Mt.Pleasant and Ephraim. It may be sunny in Spring City while rainy in Salt Lake City, and the homes and art are lovely, whatever the weather!
