Mormon Pioneer School – Salt Lake City Tours

The Heber East Ward School was originally built in 1865 and replicated in 1996 for This Is The Place Heritage Park’s pioneer history village. Made of red sandstone from the mountains near Heber, Utah, it was used for both church meetings and for school. In pioneer days, money was scarce, so teachers were often paid in produce, lumber, and other materials. Parents even offered boarding to teachers as a means of paying tuition.
