“Preserving our past, Restoring for the present, and Ensuring our Future"
The Friends of Historic Spring City ( Friends) is a grass roots organization formed to help the local community preserve their historic homes. The Friends formed as a nonprofit corporation (501c3) for the purposes of preserving, protecting and promoting the historic environment of the Spring City area through public awareness, advocacy, and active preservation.
The Friends of Historic Spring City have sponsored Heritage Day celebrations since 1983 when the Daughters of Utah Pioneers turned the Spring City Old School over to the local Spring City government. Since 2001, as part of Heritage Day, a scholarship is awarded to help local students fund their education. This scholarship is awarded to a student who contributes to the local history through art or essay. In addtion, the Friends have spronsored an annual recognition award to individuals for special service to the City's history since 1995. All of this contributes to an event that not only raises money for Spring City preservation projects, but also brings our community together to celebrate its history.
Since 1983 the Friends have been the main force behind the preservation of the Old 1899 Spring City Public School. The Friends also provides support in obtaining plaques for historic buildings on the National Register, helps Spring City residents find funding for preserving historic structures, and supports anyone in need of saving an old barn. The Friends of Historic Spring City is truly a grass roots organization working to help the Spring City community.
