First Tithing Office
This rock building was erected in 1887 by
Uintah Stake of the L.D.S. Church on ground
contributed by Jeremiah Hatch Sr. for $1.00.
Men hauled rock from which Harley Mowery
and John Jacob Slaugh, experienced stone
masons, constructed this office. The building
was laid out by the North Star. For many
years the Church members paid their tithing
here, which was one tenth of their increase
in money or produce. The proceeds were used
for general Church purposes.
